Ólafur Arnalds Presents: OPIA

Friday 8 November

〖 FB EVENT 〗〖 LIVE PERFORMANCE 〗

OPIA is a celebration of music and film, friendship and collaboration curated by Icelandic BAFTA-winning composer Ólafur Arnalds. On 8 November, OPIA takes over Southbank Centre for a full evening of performances across our venues. ‘Opia’ means ‘the ambiguous intensity of looking someone in the eye’, according to film-maker John Koenig’s Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows. Arnalds chose the name to reflect the closeness of the creative community to which these artists belong.

Arnalds heads a line-up that also features sets from piano/electronic duo Grandbrothers; pianist, violinist, producer, and composer Poppy Ackroyd; creator of brooding, breaks-infused techno Vaal; and the sparse R&B of Rhye. Kiasmos take us through to the early hours with a rare live set.

 “For this first edition of OPIA I have gathered friends, collaborators and artists who inspire me in the beautiful space of Southbank Centre in order to create an environment that encourages creative experiments, collaborative endeavours and a celebration of their art.”
