Nelson Arts Festival presents BJORK: ALL IS FULL OF LOVE

Fri 18 Oct


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
