‘A Prismatic intersection of Sex, Circus & Special Effects’ - The New York Times on the Lazer Beamz

Over the past 20 years, the musician and artist Peaches has created a comprehensive artistic oeuvre that focuses on music, performance and cross-media practices. She has made thousands of people dance in clubs with her electronic music, transgressively appropriating traditionally male-dominated genres such as rock, punk, heavy metal and rap. Her lyrics about social inequality, body images, gender equality and age read like postmodern poerty, and her concerts are highly explosive Gesamtkunstwerks, comprised of music, sound, fashion, visual- and live arts. Peaches is a master of the uncompromising popularization of the avant-garde and has, like this, implemented sex-positive feminism into the concert halls of this world.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of her stage debut, the Summer Festival is now showing the whole spectrum of her artistic universe: Peaches will open her first solo exhibition at the Kunstverein on August 9th; at KMH she will present three club nights; and with THERE'S ONLY ONE PEACH WITH THE HOLE IN THE MIDDLE, she creates a futuristic stage happening as a world premiere for the Summer Festival featuring 13 musicians, 10 performers and guests such as New York drag rapper Christeene and London-based aerial performer Empress Stah. Inspired by the variety shows of 1970s LGBTIQ* icons such as Bette Midler and Liza Minelli and with costumes by avant hair and fashion designer Charlie Le Mindu, Peaches catapults her vision of the past, present and future of queerfeminism onto the grand stage of the Kampnagel factory.

Aerial Chandelier @ Money 2020 Europe

Hannah Choose 2 of the songs I created news acts to, Money Money Money by Abba and Money Honey by Gaga and I choose I feel Love by Donna Summer. 
" Empress Stah performed at our European event and we were really impressed with the flexibility and professionalism of her performance. Stah was open to music and costume suggestions before the event, and designed her performances to suit with the needs of the audience. The aerial acrobat performance added to the delegate experience and judging by the number of photos and videos taken by the attendees they really enjoyed it!  "
