Inspired by Goldfrapp’s latest album, Tales Of Us, the striking film is a 30-minute journey through five of the individual stories featured on the album. Stranger, Laurel, Jo, Drew and Annabel interconnect subtly, sharing themes of love, loss, madness and identity, taking the viewer on a unique musical journey.
With only two stories having been seen previously this is an incredible exclusive opportunity to see the film Tales of Us as it was intended, as a complete journey and on the cinematic big screen, available in select locations for one night only.
Cinema audiences will see the Tales Of Us film transition beautifully into a live 50-minute dramatic theatrical performance by Goldfrapp including classic songs and selections from the spellbinding new album.
The Tales Of Us film was co-created by Alison Goldfrapp and director & writer Lisa Gunning (Nowhere Boy, Seven Psychopaths, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen). The marquee creative team behind the live cinematic event includes Executive Producer, Catherine Ugwu, MBE (Executive Producer of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies); critically acclaimed set designer Shona Heath (Dior, Valentino, Prada) who also created the iconic owl that graced Goldfrapp’sSeventh Tree album artwork; and lighting designer Rob Sinclair (Vampire Weekend, Pet Shop Boys).
Says Alison Goldfrapp, “We’re very excited to present a unique event, the Tales Of Us film alongside an intimate live performance, to our fans across the world. We’ve loved touring the Tales Of Us album and can’t wait to bring our live show to local cinemas”.
