LONDON SINFONIETTA: UNDER THE SKIN (MICA LEVI)

Rating: [15+]

Please note that Under the Skin includes nudity and some scenes of a sexual and violent nature.

Astonishing” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐The Telegraph

“Mica Levi’s score ups the dread level: it sounds at times like a new electronic language being born or a subtle form of communication between aliens.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Time Out

Jonathan Glazer’s 2014 film Under the Skin impressed both filmgoers and critics with its darkly seductive portrayal of an otherworldly predator, played by Scarlett Johansson. Mica Levi’s beautiful, elemental and skewed music provided the intoxicating soundtrack.

Previously known as a DJ and singer-songwriter in her band Micachu and the Shapes, Levi was catapulted to international fame and earned herself a BAFTA nomination for the film score.  With a dizzying mix of digitally-processed and live sound, Levi’s microtonal world is captivating in performance – veering between sensuality and disquiet to compelling effect.

This performance offers the unique opportunity to watch Under the Skin with Levi’s score performed live with by the world renowned contemporary classical ensemble, the London Sinfonietta. The London Sinfonietta places the best contemporary classical music at the heart of today’s culture; engaging and challenging the public through inspiring performances of the highest standard, and taking risks to develop new work and talent. Founded in 1968, the ensemble’s commitment to new music has seen it commission over 350 works, and premiere many hundreds more.
