Björk announces new Cornucopia dates for 2022

October 7, 2021—Björk’s acclaimed production Cornucopia, produced with an award-winning team of digital and theatrical collaborators and based off her 2017 album Utopia, returns for a new slate of dates in early 2022 in Los Angeles and San Francisco; tickets go on sale October 15 and will be available HERE for Los Angeles and HERE for San Francisco.Björk Orchestral, an intimate tour featuring Björk’s orchestral arrangements played by members of the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, flute septet Viibrathe Hamrahlid Choir and special guests, has four shows scheduled for this fall in Reykjavík after being postponed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. They will be streamed live online, with a portion of the sales donated in support of women’s charities worldwide; livestream tickets can be found HERE.Cornucopia, directed by Lucrecia Martel and Björk with co-creative director James Merry, made its world premiere at The Shed in spring 2019 as part of its inaugural season in its largest space, The McCourt. Media artist Tobias Gremmler created the digital visual design in an environment created by stage designer Chiara StephensonNew York Magazine called it “one of the most incredible displays of lights and sounds ever to grace a stage in the city” while The New Yorker praised Björk’s use of “fantasy as a weapon for change.”Björk is a multidisciplinary artist who, time and again, innovates across music, art, fashion, and technology. From writing, arranging, and producing an expansive music catalog, to escapades in virtual reality and digital apps, Björk continues to inspire and experiment, redefining the boundaries of how a musician works.

Additional critical praise for Cornucopia:“100 minutes of a nearly overwhelming array of sounds and images, a
 true feast for the senses and an ecstatic paean to nature and flutes. Her voice
 sounded incredible as ever, never flagging throughout the show as if drawn
from an infinite wellspring of power and energy.”

“Björk’s latest production is her most intricate, theatrical, and collaborative
 yet. It immerses fans in a sensory techno-acoustic utopia, underscored by a
poignant socio-political message about the need for environmental action.”
