There is nothing predictable about Bjork. Iceland's pop diva, multi-instrumentalist, activist, visual artist and actress is known for creating musical projects that push the envelope on her own terms. In 2011 she released her eighth studio album, Biophilia
, which symbiotically meshed her passions for innovative sounds, modern technology and the natural world. Never one to rest on convention, Bjork then adapted the album into a multi-sensory, performance-art experience consisting of a two-year tour, educational programs and a platform of innovative interactive apps that were recently enshrined in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Her latest project is a quasi concert documentary, Biophilia Live
, in which directors Peter Strickland and Nick Fenton captured the pixie powerhouse during a 2013 tour stop in London. Onstage Bjork's spasmodic performance converges with electronic blips, hard beats, stunning costumes and snippets of found film footage to form a singular cinematic experience. Biophilia Live
plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday (October 31 to November 2) at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or www.webster.edu/filmseries
). Tickets are $4 to $6.
Oct. 31-Nov. 2, 7:30 p.m., 2014
