Blackbird Ensemble, New Zealand's most inventive and theatrical chamber orchestra, presents an awe-inspiring homage to the inimitable Icelandic pop artist Björk.
In All Is Full of Love, Blackbird Ensemble serves up an audio feast of Björk’s finest songs across the decades, reimagining her much-loved classics from Debut through to Medulla and Utopia. Taking to the stage with signature flair they showcase a fine cast of vocal talent, with extraordinary visual design to evoke the themes which provide so much inspiration to Björk herself.
The line-up includes the talent of singer-songwriter Anna Coddington, the psychedelic soul of Mara TK, and dream-pop artist Priya Sami from the Sami sisters. A band of strings, brass, woodwind, keys and percussion presents custom arrangements by Silver Scroll-winning composer/director Claire Cowan.
"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.“ - William Dart, NZ Herald
"Absolutely brilliant; musical execution in every regard quite superb…. a universe of musical textures. ….. it sounds mesmerising and magical and we are transported.” - Penny Dodd, Theatreview
“Among the most engaging shows I've ever seen. I proposed to my partner after seeing the show with her that evening.. she said Yes!”
