The concert performance will be directed by Harry Potter and The Cursed Child director John Tiffany.
Björk has revealed details about Cornucopia, a new live show for 2019 that will premiere as part of the opening program for New York’s new multi-arts centre The Shed.
The show will be directed by Tony-award winner John Tiffany, who’s previous directing credits include the stage adaptation of John Carney’s musical Once and Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. Tiffany will work in collaboration with media artist Tobias Gremmler and stage designer Chloe Lamford.
