Björk  Biophilia

'A torrent of fire and ice, an explosively powerful geyser, Björk remains Iceland's flesh-and-blood rivial to the Eyjafjallajökull volcano.'

Over six exhilarating evenings, Björk brought her multimedia Biophilia project to vibrant life within the Victorian space of MOSI’s Campfield Market Hall. These immersive shows featured the haunting sounds of the 24-strong Icelandic choir, Heath Robinson-style invented instruments, introductions by David Attenborough, captivating footage of the natural world and the electrifying experience of a working Telsa coil on bass.
This was an event that truly united science, music nature – and magic.

Commissioned by Manchester International Festival.
Produced by Manchester International Festival and Björk.

With thanks to to the Museum Of Science and Industry (MOSI) for their support and collaboration.
