Björk: NYC Residency

ONLY CONFIRMED U.S. PERFORMANCES AT
NEW YORK HALL OF SCIENCE AND ROSELAND BALLROOM

Björk
In partnership with The Creators Project and the New York Hall of Science, Björk is set to bring her live Biophilia show to New York City for a special 10-night residency. Six performances will take place at the New York Hall of Science, New York City's only hands-on science and technology museum. There will also be four performances at Roseland Ballroom.

The New York Hall of Science shows have been set to Björk's original Biophilia specifications, as audio-visual shows in an intimate setting with no audience member more than a few yards from the stage. All shows are performed in the round.

The intimate performance finds Björk accompanied by a set of unique musical instruments including four 10-foot pendulum-harps, a MIDI-controlled pipe organ celeste re-fitted with bronze gamelan bars, and twin musical Tesla coils. The performance also features an award-winning 24-piece Icelandic female choir and visuals from the Biophilia Apps with app developer Max Weisel performing on stage alongside Björk and musicians Manu Delagu and Zeena Parkins.

Tickets go on sale January 13 at 10am through Ticketmaster (ticketmaster.com or 800.745.3000).

In addition to the live performance, Björk will collaborate with the New York Hall of Science on a three-week-long Biophilia education series featuring interactive science and music workshops for middle-school children.
