Amsterdam premiere of Peaches’ first film!
22 February 23.00h at Ketelhuis Amsterdam.
PEACHES DOES HERSELF
Germany | 2013 | 80 min
Written, directed and starring electro-rockstar Peaches, Peaches Does Herself is a chronicle of the ground-breaking stage production created by Peaches and by her collaborators at the end of 2010.
Already defined as a new Rocky Horror Picture Show, the film plays like a renegade mix between a deviant art project and a sex-charged rock (anti) musical.
With a cast of over 40 people and a backbone of more than 20 songs from Peaches’ catalogue,
Peaches Does Herself is a wild and wonderful trip through landmark moments in her career, channelled through the artist’s eccentric imagination.
Peaches is internationally renowned as the queen of electro-punk, a feminist provocateur and sexually progressive performer: inverting not only accepted gender norms, but also talking loudly and without censorship about sex.
After the film’s world premiere in Toronto, critics have described the movie as “a ‘Pina’ for the queer and sexually liberated crowd” and “a great introduction to the wild, pumping, sexual world of Peaches“, or in Peaches own words: “The Jukebox Musical that got a Sex Change!”.
After the screening the DJ collective The Imaginary Magic Menagerie will spin Peaches’ inspired tunes until 3 pm!
Presented in collaboration with Transcreen.
