Björk is bringing Cornucopia, her theatrical multi-media live show, to the UK later this year.
The Icelandic artist will play in London’s O2 Arena on November 19 followed by a performance at Glasgow’s Hydro on November 25. She will also play in Dublin on November 28.
Björk debuted Cornucopia at New York City’s The Shed last year during an eight-night residency. The collaborative show was made with Argentine filmmaker Lucrecia Martel, Iceland’s Hamrahlid Choir, flute septet Viibra, harpist Katie Buckley, percussionist Manu Delago, electronic engineer Bergur Thorisson, and more.
“Cornucopia has a proper stage and a catwalk, so it is aiming to entertain; to serve, perhaps, a disillusioned post-climate-changer,” Björk told Dazed recently. “It is trying to be a dream one can watch from afar, so I guess the relationship between the audience is different. I wanted the whole thing to be extremely digital and extremely acoustic, very DIY. Like, ‘Let’s start again in a new world but also we’ll have solar-powered high-tech gear with us. A sci-fi camping trip’.”
Pre-sale tickets for the UK shows go on sale at 10am this Thursday (August 8), with a general sale following the next day.
