In May 2017, one of the seminal artists of our time, Laurie Anderson will take up a unique residency at the National Concert Hall.

This residency will see her create and debut three new performances exclusively at the Hall as part of her ongoing work, The Language of The Future.

Laurie Anderson says "Being at least a quarter Irish - and who really knows how much more?- I have always felt at home in Dublin. It's the only city I know where everyone uses the language as an art form. And I mean starting with the taxi driver who picks you up at the airport. We begin the language dance. The put on, the shaggy dog, the put upon. Heaven.”

Renowned for her inventive use of technology - from her 1981 hit O Superman to her appointment as NASA’s first artist-in-residence - Laurie Anderson is one of America’s most daring creative pioneers. Her eclectic, multidisciplinary career has spanned the worlds of art, theatre and experimental music and has seen her create works as a writer, director, visual artist and vocalist. Most recently Anderson has garnered acclaim for her first feature film in almost 30 years - Heart of a Dog - which reflects on the deaths of her husband Lou Reed, her mother, her beloved dog, and such diverse subjects as family memories, surveillance, and Buddhist teachings.

The Language of the Future is the latest chapter in Laurie Anderson's ongoing exploration of the American narrative and how we tell it. Anderson's work crosses borders between dreams, reality and the elusive world of information. Known for her multimedia presentations and innovative use of technology, Anderson spins offbeat adventure stories with her characteristic wit and poignancy.
