FKA twigs hosting world premiere of her film ‘Soundtrack 7′ at BAM Rose Cinemas
Last year, FKA twigs completed a week-long residency titled Soundtrack 7 at the Manchester International Festival, which saw her draw on vaguely autobiographical themes to devise one new ensemble dance piece per day. Those original live performances (set against tracks like “How’s That”, “Ultraviolet,” and “Good to Love”) were limited to just a few audience viewings, but were captured in seven separate films directed by twigs. Those are now part of a finished 52-minute film that twigs describes as "flesh, sweat, feeling, muscle, and a live movement, no air brushing, no frills."
The Soundtrack 7 film will make its world premiere on August 3 at Brooklyn's BAM Rose Cinemas, followed by a Q&A with FKA twigs herself. The screening will also be preceded a self-directed short film featuring four songs from last year's acclaimed M3LL155X EP. Tickets are on sale now.
Meanwhile, twigs recently debuted a live show titled Radiant Me², featuring new music and choreography, performed at the 2016 Pitchfork Music Festival, and hosted a free 5-hour dance workshop in Baltimore (where she's playing a show tonight, July 20, with Travis Scott). Check out footage of the new show and the workshop below.
