Poetry and Tea

In this unique video series produced and created by PHI, artists freely explore the interplay between rhymes and sounds, sharing a quiet moment of introspection with us.

If you want something done right, do it yourself? Peaches, a Toronto-based musician and performance artist, has been transforming her thoughts into songs since the 1990s. In the past few decades, she has also lent her powerful voice to some of the biggest names in music, often punk, from Iggy Pop to Pink. Flamboyant, unleashed, with no inhibitions, and allergic to prejudice, Peaches tackles the day’s controversies with aplomb. With Vaginoplasty, a pop song she recites as an inflammatory poem, she glorifies the bounty of the female body while condemning the scourge of the teen obsession with appearances.

“Vaginoplasty. Why do you ask me?”
