About This Program

As election day looms, Laurie Anderson has a few things to tell us—things concerning Darwinism, feminism, The Tibetan Book of the Dead, Willie Nelson and alien popes. Infused with her hallucinatory language, this intimate snapshot of the United States takes form as a collection of songs and stories both witty and soulful. Delving into politics, desire, and portraits of people and cities, Anderson weaves in eloquent leitmotifs and brilliantly conceived tangents to create a uniquely satisfying meta-narrative. A lush sonic landscape of violin and electronics rounds out this poignant picture of our contemporary American moment. Co-presented with the Walker Art Center.

Please note: The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra does not perform on this program.



Come early/Stay late! Gather by D'Amico will be open one hour before and after each performance of Dirtday!. Full bar, specialty cocktails and bar snacks will be available for purchase.
