HOT BODIES OF THE FUTURE / Gærald Arev Kurdian 
Music, visuals & dj sets for the alternatives to come

︎ ︎ ︎ ︎ ︎ ︎ ︎


X ! (un opéra fantastique) is an anticipation fable, a hybrid experience blending video-games, story-telling and vocal electronic music in which Gérald Kurdian unfolds the objects of a research initiated together with an ensemble of practitioners, performers and activists who use sex and alternative intimacy to heal.
Its main materials are photographies and films contextualised as the potential fragments of an anticipation movie: the chronicles of a bewildered anti-hero, on his way to meet a community of radical lovers trying to cure themselves from advanced capitalism.
