Performance art band Princess, with Alexis Gideon and Michael O’Neill (JD Samson & MEN),
has a new live performance/video project called Out There. Out There is a live performance,
music and video presentation. Using stop motion animation and archival photos, Out There
explores the role men ought to be playing in the current cultural reckoning of misogyny. The
video’s science fiction narrative explores the power of the Divine Feminine through
collaborations with JD Samson, visual artist Jennifer Meridian, and the band TEEN. Gideon
and O’Neill perform the music alongside the projection of the video.

Princess is a performance art duo, a collaboration between Alexis Gideon and Michael O’Neill
that uses music as the backbone of a multi-disciplinary practice. Princess explores queerness
and the concept of masculinity. Simultaneously gay, straight, queer, masculine, and feminine,
Princess embodies the fluidity and coherence between the seemingly contradictory. Princess
was formed in 2004 in the Chicago DIY Performance space Texas Ballroom. The duo released
a self-titled LP and performed until 2006 when they went on to pursue other paths, reuniting IN 2017
