“A captivating record of an artist in full command of her idiosyncratic powers” is how Variety described this film which documents a concert by Icelandic musical artist Bjork at London’s Alexandra Palace in 2013.
The concert was part of her Biophilia tour which followed on the heels of the 2011 album of the same name where Bjork used a number of unique instruments that were created especially for the project. Science and nature were two thematic elements that were explored in the album and subsequent tour, which also included specially designed Apple apps that listeners could download to expand their auditory experience.
Oct. 30-Nov. 2, Biophilia Live will be screened at the RPL Theatre. Thursday and Saturday the screening is at 7 p.m., while on Friday and Sunday it’s at 9 p.m. To give you a sense of what to expect, here’s the trailer:
