In New York City we continued our collaboration with Candian songstress Peaches, getting down and dirty at Webster Hall and Rockbar as part of her DJ tour. Part of our time spent in New York included a sejour care of the fabulous hospitality of artist collective & warehouse/theatre extrordinaire "House of Yes" in Bushwick, Brooklyn. We not only stayed there but also performed, created costumes, networked and above all made friends with and were inspired by an incredible group of set and costume designers, musicians, circus performers, dancers and performance artists of all sorts- a heavenly crew of fabulous people. Speaking of heavenly, Agent Cleave and I also found our fellow kindred spirits in the form of the Zand Collective. A gorgeous crew of NY vogue goths; such beautiful and talented performers, dancers, musicians and artists, who adopted us into their bejewelled world with open arms and showed us the glamorous, the fabulous, the box, le bain; la vie en noir.
What a city.
A number of gigs in Berlin including the Vice magazine party, K-TV club opening and two performances at the infamous White Trash club- Agent Cleave and I created a death metal grotesque dance installation in their window- where punters were treated to our gothic go-go and sprayed with blood while eating their dinner.
In Amsterdam we got our hairy zebra chic-on and danced amoungst the babes at queer club UNK, and in London performed at art party Glossy, then finished the tour with en epic finale- joining her leather clad highness Peaches once more for her DJ set at Lovebox Festival. Wild.
More pics from the tour to be posted soon- stay tuned!
