Laurie Anderson at EMPAC

laurie_anderson.jpgPerformance artist Laurie Anderson will be at EMPAC this weekend for a work called Delusion. From the blurb:

Produced in part during Laurie Anderson's multiple residencies at EMPAC last year, Delusion is a meditation on life and language by way of music, video, and storytelling. Conceived as a series of short mystery plays, Delusion jump-cuts between the everyday and the mythic. Employing violin, electronic puppetry, music, visuals, altered voices, and imaginary guests, Anderson weaves a complex story about longing, memory, and identity. At its heart is the pleasure of language and a fear that the world is made entirely of words. Delusion tells its story in the colorful and poetic language that has become Anderson's trademark.

Here's a short review in the Guardian. Q&A with Anderson by The Economist's Intelligent Life.

There are two performances -- Friday and Saturday night at eight. EMPAC's site currently lists the tickets as "limited" and "very limited." Tickets are $15.

EMPAC has advertised on AOA in the past. And they were nice enough to allow us to taste pizza there.

Thanks for the shout, AOA!

If you are interested in this show, I would buy tickets now - Saturday is currently sold out, and Friday is listed as very limited (which I would put at 30 tickets or less). If any tickets are released, we will be letting people know on our Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/EMPACnews ) and Twitter ( http://www.twitter.com/EMPACnews ).

Troy has way more parking downtown than any other city I visit. There are 3 parking garages downtown and 2 are within 1000ft of Monument Square. There are public surface lots nearby. Outside the downtown core there is tons of street parking with few to no restrictions. It is unrealistic to expect cities to have parking directly in front of your destination like the suburbs. That's WHY they're different classifications.
