fka twigs will premiere new movie at bam in brooklyn in august

July 25, 2016

On Aug. 3rd, sensuous electro-soul singer FKA Twigs will present the world premiere for her a visual short project, ‘Soundtrack 7’ at BAMcinématek in Brooklyn. The abstract, but autobiographical, piece documents the petite performer’s creative process during her week-long residency at the Manchester International Festival. The conceptualized project features performances to “Ultraviolet”, “How’s That”, Good To Love“ and more, which are bound together by repeated recitation of “I Find No Peace” by poet Thomas Wyatt. The mission of this project? To expose the gritty physicality of dance and performance art. As twigs herself describes it, “flesh, sweat, feeling, muscle, and a live movement, no air brushing, no frills.”

Tickets for ‘Soundtrack 7’ are sold out, but those lucky enough to snag tickets for the screening will also have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A with FKA twigs herself, moderated by Culture Shed’s Alex Poots. More info.
