      Nelson Arts Festival presents BJORK: ALL IS FULL OF LOVE


      New Zealand’s most inventive and theatrical chamber orchestra, Blackbird Ensemble, presents an awe-inspiring homage to the inimitable Icelandic pop artist, Björk.

      Björk: All is Full of Love is an audio feast of Björk’s finest songs across the decades, reimagining her much-loved classic albums from Debut through to Medulla and Utopia.

      Taking to the stage with signature flair, Blackbird Ensemble showcases a fine cast of vocal talent and extraordinary visual design to evoke the themes that provide so much inspiration to Björk herself.

      The line-up features the talent of singer-songwriter Anna Coddington, the psychedelic soul of Mara TK, andthe dream-pop of Priya Sami, accompanied by strings, brass, woodwind, keys and percussion, with custom arrangements by Silver Scroll-winning composer and director Claire Cowan.

      “This show is absolutely mesmerising.” ANIKA MOA

      “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.” NZ HERALD

      “Alternative, theatrical, impressive, emotional, memorable.” OTAGO DAILY TIMES
