Peaches to perform and premiere directorial debut at Sundance London
Story by Jack Foley
PEACHES has been confirmed as as the first headlining act for the second Sundance London film and music festival, which will also host the UK premiere of her directorial debut, Peaches Does Herself.
Tickets for Peaches’ Friday, April 26, 2013, performance at indigO2 in The O2 will be on sale from 9am on Friday, March 1 at www.sundance-london.com.
Musician, DJ, producer and filmmaker Peaches has been captivating and changing the pop culture landscape since the release of her debut album in 2000.
The Teaches of Peaches was her first breakthrough statement, followed by her second LP, Fatherfucker. Impeach My Bush further infused the sexual and political into pop territory.
And Peaches’ fourth album, I Feel Cream, cemented her longevity with her biggest evolutionary leap to date.
Over the years, Peaches has built a reputation on her suggestive and intelligent lyrics with her musical and stylistic influences continuing to be seen and heard in artists around the world, from mainstream to underground.
Peaches Does Herself, the film, is directed and written by Peaches.
It shows Peaches follow the advice of an old stripper and make sexually forthright music. The electro rock opera chronicles Peaches’ rise to popularity and her love affair with a beautiful she-male that ultimately leads her to realise who she really is.
The film stars Peaches, Danni Daniels, Sandy Kane, Mignon, Sweet Machine Band and Jolly Goods. Sundance London will be the film’s UK Premiere.
Commenting on her participation in Sundance London, Peaches said: “I am totally thrilled to be selected for Sundance London. And to bring my live show to town in conjunction with the screening.
“Peaches Does Herself digs deeper into what I stand for as an artist while exploring the images and misconceptions surrounding my work. It’s been awhile since I’ve performed in London. I always love London’s live energy!”
The second Sundance London will take place from April 25 to 28, 2013, and plays host to international and UK premieres of American independent films fresh from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, U.S.A., as well as live music performances, panels and events.
The 2013 programme will continue its 2012 focus on presenting new work by American filmmakers and music artists.
The full film programme will be announced on Monday, March 11 with individual film tickets on sale from Friday, March 15.
