This spring, Icelandic singer and performance artist Björk will debut her latest stage show in New York City’s new venue The Shed.
Dubbed Cornucopia, the show will mark the first time the singer has ever collaborated with other artists in a performance. Working with visual artist Tobias Gremmler and stage designer Chloe Lamford, Björk claims Cornucopia will be her “most elaborate stage concert” ever.
“I am very excited to announce that I will be part of The Shed’s opening season in Manhattan next spring,” Björk wrote in a press release. “This winter I will prepare my most elaborate stage concert yet, where the acoustic and digital will shake hands, encouraged by a bespoke team of collaborators.”
The Shed’s Artistic Director and CEO Alex Poots added, “This is Bjork’s first-ever production created with theatrical collaborators. We are honored and excited to be producing this new work at The Shed.”
The exact date of Cornucopia‘s debut has yet to be determined, but Björk will be joined by Icelandic flute ensemble Viibra. Ticketing information will be announced later this year.
