Peaches: There's Only One Peach with the Hole in the Middle
28.–31.12.19
main stage

Concert, Performance

Dear guests,
Please note that there are no assigned seats for Peaches: There's only one Peach with the Hole in the Middle, despite the fact that the tickets have specific seats listed on them. Tickets were already available for purchase when it became clear that standing places at the front of the theatre are required for this production for technical reasons. This affects the rows originally numbered 1-6. Unfortunately the print on the tickets couldn’t be changed after they were released for sale. You now have a free choice of seats in one of the chairs or a free choice of (standing) places at the front of the theatre. We thank you for your understanding and apologise for any confusion.
Yours sincerely,
Volksbühne Visitor Services

Over the past 20 years, the musician and artist Peaches has created a wide-ranging oeuvre centred on music, performance and a multimedia game of signs. With her music she brings thousands to the dance floor in clubs around the world and has appropriated masculine-connotated genres such as rock, punk, heavy metal and rap. Her explicit lyrics about body image, gender trouble and social inequality can be read as postmodern poetry. As a master of uncompromising avant-garde popularisation, she's made sex-positive feminism socially acceptable on the concert stages of the world. For THERE'S ONLY ONE PEACH WITH THE HOLE IN THE MIDDLE, she's created a futuristic stage happening with almost 40 musicians and performers. Inspired by the variety shows featuring 70s LGBTIQ icons such as Bette Midler and Liza Minelli, and with costumes by the avant-garde hair and fashion designer Charlie Le Mindu, Peaches catapults her vision of the past, present and future of queer feminism to the main stage.
