Iconic storyteller and musician Laurie Anderson and ground-breaking ensemble Kronos Quartet unite for their first-ever collaboration, inspired by Anderson’s experience of Hurricane Sandy. Anderson & Kronos have created an evocative meditation on transience, combining poignant texts and music fortified by innovative technology. Landfall juxtaposes lush electronics and traditional strings by Kronos with Anderson’s powerful descriptions of loss, from water-logged pianos to disappearing animal species to Dutch karaoke bars. Dense projected texts, triggered musically via software developed for the work, overlay and compound Anderson’s tales, leaving a polyphony of meanings to percolate in the vivid wake of the storm. 

Venue Description: A multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, offering theater, dance, music, opera, film, and more from emerging artists and innovative modern masters.
