“The reigning performance artist of her time.” Boston Globe
“A singular perspective that is both haunting and timeless.” The New Yorker
One of the seminal artists of our time, Laurie Anderson creates sophisticated genre-crossing work that encompasses performance, film, music, installation, writing, photography and sculpture. In Dirtday!, she looks at politics, theories of evolution, families, history and animals in a riotous and soulful assemblage of songs and stories. Set against a detailed and opulent sonic landscape, the stories and music create a hallucinatory world made of dreams and reality. Dirtday! is the final piece in Anderson’s series of solo story projects, including Happiness and The End of the Moon – and the culmination of her groundbreaking work in this genre.
