Björk Announces ‘Cornucopia’ Residency at The Shed
Who better to help christen New York’s intricate and strange new art space, The Shed, than Björk? Iceland’s most-famous export will stage a massive new production, pulling in a large amount of co-conspirators to create a musical and visual spectacle called Cornucopia.
The show–part of the highfalutin new venue’s first season of performances–will start with a preview in May, running the rest of the month and ending in June. Björk isn’t offering much about the project, saying that it will be a place “where the acoustic and digital will shake hands, encouraged by a bespoke team of collaborators.” After years of innovative projects and stunning performances, she’s earned the benefit of the doubt.
Björk will be joined by harpist Katie Buckley, percussionist Manu Delago, visual artist James Merry, choreographer Margrét Bjarnadóttir and director John Tiffany. She’ll also be bringing along her flute-based backing band Vibra.
Tickets go on sale February 22; check out the performance schedule below.
