Not only is Laurie Anderson one of the least easily pigeonholed musicians of all time, but, as an artist, she pushes the boundaries of all the expressive media she tackles, revealing their unfathomable potential and implementing new solutions and combinations. From sound poetry to video-scenic experimentation, from Fluxus performances to hit parades (O Superman was the least predictable hit of the 1980s), for this new adventure Laurie Anderson will play material old and new strarting from her debut albumBig Science (1982), a successful minimalist synthesis of Steve Reich and Robert Ashley. Its clever combination of avant-garde theatre and pop music soon became a milestone in a dazzling musical experience, concocted with a group of great veterans of New York’s downtown scene.

The event will be streamed starting from 12 June on ravennafestival.live
