a theatre company is throwing a Bjork party in Brooklyn (Biophilia out two weeks later)
They describe it like this:
LiveMusicVideo Theatre Company will present BjorkBall, The Unofficial Biophilia CD Release Party: a Bjork-inspired multimedia retrospective celebration and dance party, at 285 KENT in Williamsburg, BK on Thursday, September 29th, 2011 at 7:00PM.
BjorkBall is a one-night-only event completely inspired by the life and work of Björk, and triggered especially by the jaw-dropping multimedia presentation of the upcoming release of Biophilia, her newest musical project and forthcoming full-length studio album. BjorkBall is a PARTY you won’t want to miss; a costume ball; a DJ dance hall; a multimedia performance art retrospective of Björk’s work featuring live performances that pop up throughout the evening, created specifically to represent one song from each of Björk’s former albums and culminating in a large fashion installation inspired by the newest, Biophilia. Amidst Björk-inspired, interactive installations, DJs spinning sick remixes, and a party atmosphere where people are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite Björk incarnation, the larger pop-up performances will span the mediums of dance, video, projection, fashion, song, and more – a stimulating collision of the visual and the aural combining to make a massive, celebratory night in honor of music, dance, art, life, and… well, Björk!
Contributing artists include SOTU Productions, Natalie Johns (former Bjorkestra front-woman), Bluecrash Event Director, TAJ Dance, DJ Narcisse, Built4Collapse Theatre Company, and many more.
LiveMusicVideo (Stephen F. Arnoczy and Liz Alderfer) seeks to create a tangential music experience through the deconstruction and re-imagining of the art form of the music video. BjorkBall will be the inaugural evening-length event presented by LiveMusicVideo, founded in 2010.
BjorkBall will begin at 7:00PM. Tickets, priced at $10, are available for advanced purchase at http://bjorkball.eventbrite.com/ or at the door on the evening of the event.
Biophilia was supposed to be out that same week, but the release date has been pushed back to October 10th (UK) /11th (US). Get the app now though.
