‘The world is made of stories and as stories escalate and get shorter and shorter, until they’re ten-word tweets, and as our sense of reality continues to shred, we see that this is not a political situation – it’s an existential one. And we suddenly see: we’re drowning in our own stories.‘ – Laurie Anderson


Across the pages of Laurie Anderson’s All the Things I Lost in the Flood is a series of essays on the collaborative relationship between images and language. A pioneering artist in the realm of technology, Anderson’s practice spans drawing, installation, film, sculpture, software, theatre, music and more. In this intimate reading-performance, she shares insight into her use of voice, electronics, code, narrative and digital language. The evening includes a preview of unpublished images as well as an inside look at the artist’s methods, inventions, strategies, failures and ‘plan B’s’. Peer into the creative process, and discover stories of performance, transformed by performance.

Following the guidance issued by the Government of Ireland on 12 March in relation to new measures to contain Covid-19, The National Concert Hall and Galway 2020 made the decision to cancel this event.

While The National Concert Hall and Galway 2020 are extremely disappointed to have made these decisions, public health is our number one priority and we must follow Government advice.

Ticket holders will be contacted directly.
