Cornucopia: Björk's Move Into Theatricality

lighting design and video design for Bjork's Cornucopia at The Shed

The outlandish and incredibly talented Björk set up shop for a month in the newly opened The Shed in NYC to premiere her newest, and first, theatrical endeavor: Cornucopia. The theatrical event manifested in eight shows with lighting design by Bruno Poet, who collaborated with lighting programmer Richard White, and video content by Tobias Gremmler, who collaborated with Björk herself, set design by Chiara Stephenson, and the immersive surround sound experience designed by Björk and FOH engineer John Gale, with support by Southby Productions and Steve Jones, d&b audiotechnik's education and application support team leader.
