Laurie Anderson: The Language of the Future
Copresented with the Walker Art Center and MPR Live Events
Saturday, March 19, 2016 at 8:00pm (SOLD OUT)
Fitzgerald Theater, Saint Paul
“Laurie Anderson is a singer-songwriter of crushing poignancy – a minimalist painter of melancholy moods who addresses universal themes in the vernacular of the commonplace.” – Rolling Stone
Laurie Anderson delicately explores the inextricable link between the past, present and future through her custom curated songs and stories for this tailor-made evening of music. Lacing together a sonic landscape of electronics, voice and violin along with her signature surrealism, Anderson captures an irreverent snapshot of the American Now and, as The New York Times writes, “continues to imbue her work with a singular perspective that is both haunting and timeless." Onstage at the intimate Historic Fitzgerald Theatre, the ephemeral and the nostalgic will coalesce into a truly extraordinary evening.
