‘Stargasm / Light in Places’ is an act that was made in collaboration between Empress Stah and Peaches.
Empress Stah invented the world’s only Aerial Laser Ass performance and Peaches wrote a song for it.
Stah is performing as part of Peaches’ new show
‘There’s only One Peach with a Hole in the Middle’, starring alongside drag rapper Christeene and an ensemble cast of 23 other musicians and performers, with costumes by Charlie Le Mindu.
This act has been performed for Elton John, Red Bull, Pacha Ibiza, House of Yes and more.
‘A Prismatic intersection of Sex, Circus & Special Effects’ - The New York Times
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.
