Please note that Chris Watson, our Artist in Residence for Nature Unwrapped, has created a sound calendar of environments from the northern hemisphere. Ahead of this show, you will be hearing sounds from an old railway path in Suffolk. Come half an hour before the performance to enjoy the installation in Hall One. Your ticket is required.
Due to popular demand, we are delighted to welcome Laurie Anderson for a second performance on Monday 6 April. Tickets for that show are available here.
A true pioneer in the realms of electronic music and performance art, Laurie Anderson has been using technology to transform the way we tell stories since the 1970s and continues to be one of the most daring creative voices around today.
In 2012 Hurricane Sandy, the biggest Atlantic hurricane on record, flooded her basement, ‘the seawater had shredded and pulped everything’. She lost her collected work but realised that in this confrontation with the overwhelming power of the natural world, the stories survived.
In this solo performance, All the Things I Lost in the Flood, Anderson employs spoken word, video, live music and electronics to explore the power and perils of language and storytelling, dissecting the relationship between words and images, provoking questions about beauty, time, reality and memory.
