"DIRTDAY!" COMES TO CAMPBELL HALL OCTOBER 23
“As Americans, we’re all spin doctors,” Laurie Anderson claims. She’s talking to me on the phone from New York about her latest work, Dirtday!, which, as with so much of her work, seems to have taken on a life of its own. Begun as a musical study centered on the violin and string modulations, it grew to encompass political territory during the Occupy Wall Street protests and then morphed into a series of short stories touching on evolution, history, and the question of why we dream.
