FKA twigs 'Soundtrack 7' @ Manchester International Festival
Twigs forewent singing altogether at the Manchester International Festival this month with Soundtrack 7, a multimedia dance piece in seven parts, made over seven days as part of a residency.
“Basically, my friend Aaron choreographed these seven dance pieces to my music, and I directed a show that included them,” she said. “I filmed the seven pieces, one per day, from Thursday to Wednesday, and on the last day I performed all the pieces together. It was very different. They’re not music videos. They’re stories told through dance, and shot on stage. It’s very raw. I think it’s quite emotive.”
