Visionist and Zadie Xa
Hysterical X

Cafe OTO

Zadie Xa presents a new performance piece bringing together elements of video projection, sound and live storytelling. Written by Taylor Le Melle, Basic Instructions B4 Leaving is a non-linear narrative venturing into a distant cosmos where shape shifting, mutation and magic are the central themes explored.

For Hysterical X Visionist will present new material. His debut album Safe is a ‘personal portrait of anxiety’. It takes its listener on a journey through the human condition. In his own words the album is “a sound representation of an anxiety attack, from having that one thought and that thought turning into multiple thoughts, and finding yourself having an attack, and then coming out of that and managing to relax again. It takes you through that experience. That’s one of the reason’s it’s called ‘Safe’. For me, when I have anxiety I take myself away from the place that I’m in and take myself to somewhere I can be more in control.” (Dazed)

Hysterical X is part of PS/Y’s coming Hysteria programme, 2017 and follows on from Anxiety, 2014 and Anxious Xmas, 2013 and 2012.
