Folie A Deux

Synopsis

Share:

Part staged performance, part concept album, Folie à Deux is a lyrical investigation into love and loneliness within a relationship. Songs are woven together for two singers, an acoustic harp and a specially created electro-magnetic harp.

Folie à Deux is a collaboration between British composer Emily Hall, Icelandic writer Sjón (lyricist to Björk) and features vocals from singer-songwriter Ana Silvera and tenor Finnur Bjarnason.

Insanity, electricity and love collide in a sonic voyage into the shared psychosis known as folie à deux, where a delusion is transmitted from one person to another.

A woman is struggling to connect with her lover. He believes that the pylon outside their house has a special power. His delusion passes on to her and, as sparks fly, their madness takes hold.

Running Time: 50 mins (no interval)
