Laurie Anderson

I got all excited because I saw Laurie Anderson years ago…but she won’t be there this time:

via: Live Journal

Please join a courageous and talented group of 10-14-year-olds as they present their interpretations of pieces spanning the entire history of Laurie Anderson’s career! Come to An Evening Without Laurie Anderson

10-14-yearold actors will be performing two full acts of pieces spanning the career of performance artist Laurie Anderson, from classics like “Strange Angels” and “Big Science” to pieces from her recent show, “Homeland,” including “The Beginning of Memory.”

We’re letting the kids lead the way with interpretation of the material, with staging, sets, costumes, etc. so expect a lively, engaging, and delightfully odd performance.

Friday & Saturday, April 20th & 21st, 7pm
Mahomet-Seymour Junior High School Auditorium

Tickets are $4 in advance, $5 at the door
All proceeds go to support the MSJH Drama Club

Tickets can be purchased soon at the Mahomet IGA, Caffe Paradiso in Urbana, or the MSJH main office
