Welcome to the world of Empress Stah, creator and performer of 'Stargasm', the worlds only Laser Ass Aerial show.
This performance piece is a collaboration with cult rock star, Peaches, who wrote the track 'Light in Places' for it.
The inspiration for the piece is a winding trail that meanders via the Russian Space Agency, a Disused American Military Base and the largest purported UFO cover up in Europe, with Ron Athey and the SPILL Fetival of Performance.
The act was origianlly concieved for 'Empress Stah in Space' and performed at the Soho Theatre, it went on to be the highlight of Ibiza Rocks House at Pacha in 2014 and was most recently seen headlining Club Spiegel at the London Wonderground, Southbank.

"A draw this summer at Pacha, the nightclub that put Ibiza on the map, was the Empress Stah, an aerialist working a trapeze with a laser light saber flashing from her posterior - a prismatic intersection of sex, circus and special effects .... "
Blogger for the New York Times, Phoebe Eaton, mentions my act 'Stargasm - Laser Ass Aerial' featuring the worlds first laser butt plug : )
As the guests descended the curving stairway into The Great Room at Grosvenor House in Mayfair, they were greeted by the elegant vision of yours truly, suspended above the dance floor, gracefully performing seemingly impossible shapes, high above their heads.
The theme was Venice Carnival Masked Ball and my performance and costume was especially commissioned for the event.

'HELLHOUND' @ CLUB NOIR, GLASGOW
This HalIoween I travelled to Club Noir in Glasgow with my gruesome masterpiece 'Helhound'.
I took the train to Scotland with my Glamour Assistant Graham, 5 goats heads, 3 litres of blood, 1 wolf merkin, a double pulley aerial rigg & a can of fire breathing fuel.
The event was held out the prestigious 02 Academy and was sold out to 2000 dressed up cabaret connoisseurs and party people.
One journalist tweeted this about my performance ....
Our run of Ibiza Rocks House at Pacha parties continue to define the summer and last Monday saw electronic pioneer Giorgio Moroder take to the decks for an ultra rare, exclusive set. We were effortlessly guided through a back catalogue of bonafide classics - with some choice new re-edits for good measure - amidst an atmosphere bursting with intrigue, charm and decadence. Check out the film above ..... Come Further Up, Come Further In .....
A rare privilege for all those in attendance, Giorgio Moroder was joined by Basement Jaxx, Tony Humphries, Doorly plus the guests and characters of Ibiza Rocks House, making this night stand out like no other on the island.
Ibiza Rocks House at Pacha. Bringing Mondays back to life. A world with more attitude, more authenticity, more atmosphere and more fun.

If you look closely at the picture below you will see a tiny me hanging upside down in a rainfall of confetti.

Wanna see the laser .... You have to come in person !!
'Swinging from the Chandelier' is where you will find me as this legendary event returns to Shoreditch.
A decade has passed since my Jerwood Circus Award funded the Chandelier and there is now a whole new generation of audience that has never seen it !! Catch the classics that defy the passage of time as I perform 'Roses are Dead' with the infamous 'Diamond Pussy' and 'Ice Palace' as it was designed to be seen, from the Chandelier.
