See The Joker with Hildur Guðnadóttir's score performed live

Like many of the more daring films in history, Todd Phillips’ Joker proved a divisive beast on release. Phillips’ film – co-written with Scott Silver and starring Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro and Zazie Beetz – is a gritty homage to Scorsese at his most unflinching, repositioning the infamous Batman villain as a cross between Taxi Driver’s Travis Bickle and King Of Comedy’s Rupert Pupkin. Phoenix plays Arthur Fleck, a struggling comedian who works a miserable day job as a clown, falling deeper and deeper into a delusional pit that will eventually create the supervillain of comic book lore. The Observer’s Mark Kermode called it “provocative” and “confrontational”, while Metro, The Times and Empire all heralded the film with five-star reviews.

The Joker Live In Concert gives fans the opportunity to see the film in a whole new light, with Icelandic composer Hildur Guðnadóttir’s Oscar, Grammy, Golden Globe and BAFTA-winning score played live. Guðnadóttir, a classically trained cellist who has played with Múm, Throbbing Gristle, The Knife and Sunn O))), has also won awards for her work on the HBO series Chernobyl, as well as the films Journey’s End and Mary Magdalene.

The Joker Live In Concert confirmed a UK tour for September, October and November 2021, beginning in London’s Eventim Apollo.
