Björk is bringing Biophilia to Paris. The singer will stage a six-night residency in the French capital, performing four gigs in a circus tent on Île Seguin, an island on the Seine river.

While two shows will take place at Le Zénith, an arena in the 19th arrondissement, the first four will be staged inside Cirque en Chantier, a big-top on Île Seguin. For these “intimate” performances, the press release explained, “no audience member [will be] more than a few metres from the stage.” It is usually a venue for circus performers, including Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Plume.
