Tour name: PANDORA'S BOX (1928) original live score written and performed by Johann Johannsson, Hildur Gudnadottir w/ Philip Jeck
The rise and fall of the captivating, amoral young prostitute Lulu, remains one of the greatest ever on-screen explorations of the power of sex. Brought to life by the inimitable and incandescent Louise Brooks, the heroine of GW Pabst’s 1929 silent film is driven by curiosity and expresses herself only through pleasure.
This project sees Jóhann Jóhannsson (Fordlandia), Hildur Guðnadóttir (Mum, Throbbing Gristle) and turntablist Philip Jeck combine forces to create brand new soundtrack that plays with Weimar-era music, the iconic figure of Louise Brooks and the film’s mercurial energy.
