The first look at Björk’s new stage show ‘Cornucopia’

With a huge new show coming to new NYC venue The Shed, preparations for the glitzy affair are well and truly underway. With the show slated for its first performance-proper tonight, preview shows have been underway and highlight the “digital theatre” of her latest stage show Cornucopia.

Bjork picks out five musicians you need to listen to

The clip shows Björk performing track’s from her last LP Utopia’s, with ‘Body Memory’ and ‘Future Forever’ getting their first live outing. She also sang ‘Venus As A Boy’ for the first time in nearly a decade and ‘Show Me Forgiveness’ for the first time since 2006, among other obscure and wonderful rarities.

The stage shows is likely to be her most colourful yet, with Rock NYC who attended the preview hailing it as a “thrilling, astonishingly beautiful musical and visual illustration of a world where people and nature cross-pollinate in matriarchal society. Imagine Avatar as a plant-based human mash-up.” With Björk herself describing it as a “feminist fairytale” and a “sci-fi pop concert”. All signs are pointing towards success.
