New York-based artist Laurie Anderson has created large-scale theatrical works that combine a variety of media–music, video, storytelling, projected imagery, sculpture–in which she is an electrifying performer. As a visual artist, her work has been shown at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, as well as extensively in Europe, including the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. She has also released seven albums for Warner Brothers including “Big Science,” featuring the song “O Superman,” which rose to number two on the British pop charts. In 1999 she staged “Songs and Stories from Moby Dick,” an interpretation of Herman Melville’s 1851 novel.
