Goldfrapp announce details of a very special Tales Of Us cinema event – a worldwide screening of the film Tales Of Us followed immediately by an exclusive dramatic live performance transmitted into cinemas from the magnificent surroundings of the legendary Air Studios in London. The experience will be broadcast by Arts Alliance Media across the UK, Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand on the evening of March 4th, 2014.
Inspired by Goldfrapp’s latest album, Tales Of Us, the film is a 30-minute journey through five of the individual stories featured on the album. Stranger, Laurel, Jo, Drew and Annabel interconnect subtly, sharing themes of love, loss, madness and identity, taking the viewer on a unique musical journey.
Cinema audiences will see the Tales Of Us film transition beautifully into a live 50-minute dramatic theatrical performance by Goldfrapp including classic songs and selections from the spellbinding new album.
The Tales Of Us film was co-created by Alison Goldfrapp and director & writer Lisa Gunning (Nowhere Boy, Seven Psychopaths, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen). The marquee creative team behind the live cinematic event includes Executive Producer, Catherine Ugwu, MBE (Executive Producer of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies); critically acclaimed set designer Shona Heath (Dior, Valentino, Prada) who also created the iconic owl that graced Goldfrapp’s Seventh Tree album artwork; and lighting designer Rob Sinclair (Vampire Weekend, Pet Shop Boys).
Says Alison Goldfrapp,
“We’re very excited to present a unique event, the Tales Of Us film alongside an intimate live performance, to our fans across the world. We’ve loved touring the Tales Of Us album and can’t wait to bring our live show to local cinemas.”
The tour also includes a performance at the The Lowry in Salford, where Alison Goldfrapp curated her first ever art exhibition. This is the first exhibition within The Lowry’s new “Performer As Curator” series, and shows artwork Alison has selected from international collections
Goldfrapp will release “Thea,” the latest single from Tales Of Us, on March 18th.
