Laurie Anderson, the reigning performance artist of our time, has performed at Lincoln Center on numerous occasions, most recently atLincoln Center Festival 2008 with the evening-length work Homeland. In roles as varied as visual artist, composer, poet, photographer, filmmaker, electronics whiz, vocalist, and instrumentalist, Anderson has toured around the world with shows ranging from simple spoken word performances to elaborate multimedia events. On August 10 in Damrosch Park she performs on a double-bill that features a younger generation of experimenters and innovators led by composer/arranger/violinist Todd Reynolds, with Sxip Shirey, Adam Matta and an allstar string section.
On Aug 10, @SxipShirey collaborates for the first time with @Digifiddler Todd Reynolds and beatboxer @AdamMatta, on a bill with Laurie Anderson @LCOutofDoors. @SxipShireysHair will look a lot like this, but he’ll be smiling. Come early for Spike’s Sideshow, featuring members of Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, Data the Robot doing stand-up comedy (as seen on TED), New Orleans swing stalwarts Aurora Nealand & the Royal Roses (As seen on Treme) and lots more.
