Björk: All is Full of Love

Friday 18th October 2019

New Zealand's most inventive and theatrical chamber orchestra, Blackbird Ensemble, presents an awe-inspiring homage to the inimitable Icelandic pop artist, Björk.

Björk: All is Full of Love is an audio feast of Björk's finest songs across the decades, reimagining her much-loved classic albums from Debut through to Medulla and Utopia.

Taking to the stage with signature flair, Blackbird Ensemble showcases a fine cast of vocal talent and extraordinary visual design to evoke the themes that provide so much inspiration to Björk herself.

The line-up features the talent of singer-songwriter Anna Coddington, the psychedelic soul of Mara TK, andthe dream-pop of Priya Sami, accompanied by strings, brass, woodwind, keys and percussion, with custom arrangements by Silver Scroll-winning composer and director Claire Cowan.

"This show is absolutely mesmerising." ANIKA MOA

"The bijou spectacle of Blackbird Ensemble is something to hear and behold ... with frisky fiddles and punchy saxes ... don't miss out on the magic." NZ HERALD
