Artist, provocateur, and electro-rock goddess Peaches brings her sensational stage show to the big screen in a no-holds-barred neo-queer extravaganza channeled through the wild, pumping, sexually skewed fibers of her unstoppable imagination. A jukebox musical with a sex change, Peaches Does Herself is a mythical biography that travels through the artist’s four provocative albums (“The Teaches of Peaches,” “Fatherfucker,” “Impeach my Bush,” and “I Feel Cream”). On the advice of a 65-year-old stripper, Peaches charts a course of sexually forthright music that leads her to develop magical sexual powers. As her popularity increases she becomes defined by the image expected by her fans, and it is only after Peaches has her heart broken by a beautiful she-male that she discovers her true self. Staged in the heart of Berlin’s art and theatre scene, the show unfurls on intricately connected sets filled with a progressively swelling synth band, teams of dancers in eye-popping costumes (or lack-thereof), elaborate theatrics (including one unforgettable entrance through an enormous sequined vagina), and a cast that features trans porn star Danni Daniels and The Naked Cowgirl, Sandy Kane. In the middle of this sexed-up, art-fuck spectacle there is Peaches, doing herself, and loving every moment of it.
Peaches is an iconic musician and performance artist. Known for her genderbending provocations, she has inspired and shaped the mainstream into a more inclusive and sexually progressive surrounding. Over the years, she has built a reputation on her suggestive and intelligent lyrics, her amalgamation of rock and electro sounds, and her high-energy performances, continuing to outdo herself with each brash step. Peaches has released four albums to date.
