Björk: Cornucopia


Time Out says

The infamously quirky Icelandic artist is already known for extravagance. In 2017, she re-imagined her eighth studio release Vulnurica as an immersive VR-experience, in which she transforms into a God-like entity of pure light dancing with an ominously fluourescing, flying jellyfish. And previous tours have featured the likes of 70-piece orchestras (2001's Vespertine), as well as electric-bolt-emitting tesla coils and pendulums that utilize the earth’s gravitational pull to create musical patterns (Biophilia).

So in other words: When Björk describes her newest stage creation as her "most elaborate" yet, you can be plan to be no less than awestruck. Her first full theatrical production, Cornucopia promises to bridge digital and acoustic worlds in a stunning array of visuals, stage design and sound.

But despite the hype, the show remains shrouded in mystery—there's no word on what music she'll be performing exactly, nor has she provided much in the way of promotional imagery or video. The promotional poster features the singer donning the same outfit as in her "Utopia" music video, so its possible the show will expand on music from her latest album of the same name.
