Björk has announced two new live orchestral shows in Miami, following a series of livestreamed performances with the Hamrahlíð Choir, Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, and Viibra flute septet earlier this year.
Set to take place at Miami’s Arsht Center, the concerts will be her first ever live performances in the city, seeing her perform acoustic arrangements of her work alongside the conductor Bjarni Frímann Bjarnason and a 32-piece local orchestra.
Bjarnason also performed alongside Björk and the Hamrahlíð Choir as part of her streamed concert series last month, and was originally set to collaborate on her 2020 Björk Orkestral shows, which were scheduled to take place across Europe but had to be postponed due to coronavirus.
The new orchestral concerts in Miami are scheduled to take place on February 13 and 16, 2022. Tickets will go on sale via the Arsht Center’s official website on Friday (December 10).
Björk will also be taking her experimental theatre show Cornucopia to the US next year, with three performances at LA’s Shrine Auditorium on January 26 and 29, and February 1.
Elsewhere, the musician is set to star in Robert Eggers’ upcoming viking revenge drama The Northman. She joins an ensemble cast that also includes her daughter, Ísadóra Bjarkardóttir Barney, The Witch’s Anya Taylor-Joy and Kate Dickie, Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman, Ethan Hawke, and Alexander Skarsgård. The film is currently due to hit cinemas on April 22, 2022.
