Joker – Live in Concert
Todd Phillips’ ground-breaking, award-winning film will be screened with the accompaniment of a live orchestra playing composer Hildur Guðnadóttir’s award-winning score. The event at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre marks the first leg of a world tour, following a limited engagement in London which begins on 30 April.
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.
16+ only. No under 16s will be permitted.
