Sundance London takes a slice of Peaches

Musician to headline U.K. film-music fest

LONDON

Provocative Canadian musician and performance artist Peaches will be the first headlining act for the 2nd Sundance London film and music festival, which takes place April 25-28 at the giant O2 venue.

The fest will present the U.K. premiere of “Peaches Does Herself,” an electro rock opera written and directed by Peaches, who will also give a live performance on April 26.

“To bring my live show to town in conjunction with the screening … digs deeper into what I stand for as an artist while exploring the images and misconceptions surrounding my work,” she said in a statement.

Peaches’ work is characterized by its sexual candour, combined with a political commitment to challenge traditional gender expectations. In her film, she plays herself as she follows the advice of an old stripper to make sexually forthright music, while falling in love with a beautiful she-male.

The 2nd Sundance London will host the international and U.K. premieres of U.S. indie films fresh from the 2013 Sundance fest in Park City, as well as presenting a slew of live music performances, panels and other events.
