The composer, storyteller and performer Laurie Anderson is one of America’s most renowned—and daring—creative pioneers. Her work, which encompasses music, visual art, poetry, film and photography, has challenged and delighted audiences around the world for more than 30 years. The New Yorker has said she “continues to imbue her work with a singular perspective that is both haunting and timeless.” The Boston Globe has deemed her “the reigning performance artist of her time.”
The Language of the Future is the latest chapter in Anderson’s ongoing exploration of the American narrative and how we tell it. A collection of songs and stories about contemporary culture, the work crosses borders between dreams, reality and the elusive world of information. A signature Anderson multimedia presentation, with innovative use of technology, The Language of the Future finds Anderson spinning offbeat adventure stories with her characteristic wit and poignancy.
