Björk will be undertaking a 6 night residency in Paris next year, bringing her 'Biophilia' live show to the French capital.
The first four performances will take place at Le Cirque En Chantier, situated on L'Ile Seguin, an island in the middle of the Seine. Le Cirque En Chantier is a specially contructed circus tent that allows no audience member to be more than a few metres from the stage of the intimate setting. The two further shows will be at Le Zenith, where Björk will be become the first ever artist to perform in the round at the legendary venue.
Björk's 'Biophilia' project has brought together app developers, scientists, writers, inventors, musicians, and instrument makers to create a unique multimedia exploration of the universe and its physical forces--particularly those where music, nature, and technology meet.
The 'Biophilia' album that Björk released in 2011 is only part of the project, in addition to the live performance, Björk will also present her 'Biophilia Educational Program'. Featuring interactive science and music workshops for school children, the series leads students on an intensive study of the scientific concepts at the core of Biophilia's songs, including crystalline structures, lunar phases and viruses. Students will also learn to use the 'Biophilia Apps' as tools for music composition and delve into the study of how musicology relates to nature.
