Under the disappearing moon, Björk remained before us, moving on a delightful bed of wind instruments for Cornucopia, her 10th show visit and first dramatic creation. The Icelandic vocalist and musician, initially delivered Utopia in the colder time of year of 2017, with the visit starting May of 2019 which eventually came to a delay that prohibited summer.
Very nearly three years after the fact, she makes her hotly anticipated get back with a dramatic exertion loaded with throbbing visuals which all together sews ringlets of trust towards the scaffold between what is regular and what is progressing innovatively, that the navigated revelation could lead us towards a characteristic movement instead of one of relapse, really typifying her Utopia.
As the night progressed, Utopia met new life in her bountiful execution as the vocalist skipped in front of an audience in a tornado of light and rich breeze like sonics, in any event, singing an exemplary number one, “Venus As a Boy” with her expressive impulses joined exclusively by the wisps of a solitary woodwind.
Before the end, the artist considered how LA, the city we as a whole (perhaps at times horribly) call home changes at regular intervals, inviting new recollections, companions, and encounters with each new cycle. The incomparable Greta Thunberg shared a heart-opening argue for a greener time frame ahead previously. What’s more, we might dare to dream that the following revolution could bring one of an amicable shared mindset.
Björk will get back to The Shrine Auditorium for two additional evenings, January 29th and February first.
