Empress Stah In Space is part of an ongoing project with a long-term ambition; to create a performance in outer space. As part of this, Empress Stah has floated in ‘Zero Gravity’ and made a film as ‘The Stah Ship Trooper’ in the red light district of Amsterdam. Set on the plane of immanence, the show’s concepts have been transcribed through trance and writing sessions between Empress Stah and seminal artist Ron Athey, which took place at Bentwaters in Suffolk, the site of the biggest purported UFO/Military incident in Europe.
Eleven interconnected actions are bought to life using 3D animation and video mapping technologies, and include original tracks by electro clash super star, Peaches, and legendary punk poet, Lydia Lunch. Hailing from the underground cabaret circuit, Empress Stah delivers genre-defying performances that fuse sublime aerial artistry and thought provoking acts. Ron Athey is an internationally renowned performance and body artist from Los Angeles.
