In the Midlands, Herezy n Heels drew 350 people for their last event and DJs included David and Allen from Torture Garden. Now, on Friday 25th September, Heresy n Heelz comes to Derby – and stars cabaret legend Empress Stah…
Empress Stah’s work is lighthearted, pornographic, humorous, blasphemous and politically incorrect. Highlights of her 12 year career include a Jerwood Circus Award for her solo show ‘Swinging from the Chandelier’, selling out her West End Cabaret Spectacular ‘The Very Best of Empress Stah’ and headlining the Erotica Expo at Olympia. Clients include Damien Hirst, Harvey Nichols, Smirnoff, Cosmopolitan Magazine and The Brit Awards. Stah has toured extensively with Torture Garden and appeared alongside Dita Von Teese & Cirque Du Soleil as well as appearances at The Box, NYC and La Clique at the London Hippodrome. www.empressstah.com
