Todd Phillips’ ground-breaking, award-winning film Joker comes to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, where it will be screened with the accompaniment of a live orchestra playing composer Hildur Guðnadóttir’s award-winning score.
Central to the emotional journey Joaquin Phoenix’s character Arthur Fleck takes throughout the movie is Guðnadóttir’s beautifully haunting, Golden Globe-winning and BAFTA- and Academy Award-nominated score. The fusion of looming industrial soundscapes with raw, emotive string-led melodies - led by a lone cello - creates a melancholic shroud marked with moments of hope, which unfolds gradually to become a fever pitch of disquieting tension.
This extraordinary music will be brought to life by a full orchestra to create a vivid, visceral and entirely new Joker viewing experience. Performed live, Guðnadóttir’s inimitable score illuminates further the emotional weight, texture and atmosphere of Phoenix’s captivating portrayal.
One of the most acclaimed young composers of her generation, and the first-ever solo female winner of the Golden Globe for Best Original Score, Hildur Guðnadóttir is also known as the composer of HBO’s celebrated miniseries Chernobyl.
Hildur Guðnadóttir said: “I'm thrilled to get to see and hear Joker in the cinema with a live orchestra. When we recorded the music, the orchestra brought such depth and detailed attention to the performances that we were all literally holding our breaths during most of the recording sessions. It was a beautiful trip. I’m so happy to get to go there again and for an audience to experience that too.”
Director Todd Phillips said: “I speak for the entire Joker team when I say how thrilled we are to be working with SENBLA and Ollie Rosenblatt on Joker - In Concert. I think it’s a wonderful way for audiences to experience Hildur Guðnadóttir‘s haunting and immersive score while bearing witness to Joaquin Phoenix’s descent into madness as Arthur.”
Joker - In Concert is produced and promoted worldwide by Senbla and following its London opening will tour the UK and Europe before embarking on an international tour.
