It's always a pleasure to perform together with Peaches and last night in Reykjavik was no exception. This show is definitely a refreshing challenge to a rather well behaved classical animal like me and I'm growing extremely fond of the over-the-top temperament required to pull it of.
Having done the show for quite some time its fun to see how differently the piece is perceived by different audiences. Last night they picked up on the humour in a way we haven't experienced before, finding jokes and good humour where other audiences see tragedy or suspense. They were also great participators, almost singing "crucify him" in unison along with the piano at the end where there's normally only chaotic screaming. Great fun! I think its a great quality to the show that it's this agile, with enough layers to accommodate both laughter and tears (not that those exclude each other in any way).
Peaches Christ Superstar was put on in The Reykjavik City Theatre as the opening show of The Everybody's Spectacular festival, a new joint endeavor of Lòkal and Reykjavik Dance Festival.
