Bjrk: Biophilia Live review

All is full of Björk

Funghi blooms across the screen, a female choir floods the stage and the singer’s hair is otherworldly. Immersively directed by Nick Fenton and Peter Strickland, this document of the tour finale for Björk’s “app album” Biophilia is no average gig-pic.

While ecology and evolution provide loose themes, Björk’s impish glee ignites a fabulously off-piste affair. Whether introducing strange instruments, singing ‘Isobel’ or stomping through ‘Declare Independence’, she’s a riot of charisma and daring, finding pleasures in the places most pop stars wouldn’t think to look.
