Concert for Dogs & Heart of a Dog w/ Laurie Anderson

“Wouldn’t it be great if you’re playing a concert and you look out and everyone’s a dog?” Laurie Anderson—dog-lover, musician, and visual artist extraordinaire—recalls musing in conversation with Yo-Yo Ma, while waiting backstage at a graduation ceremony. True to form, the multi-talented Anderson has made her outlandish dream come true, first at the Sydney Opera House, and now at The Cinefamily!

Featuring canine-friendly high frequencies, Anderson’s multivalent composition will be paired with her latest film, Heart of a Dog, a melangé of memories and fantasies surrounding Anderson’s late dog Lolabelle (watch Lolabelle playing piano here!!), and followed by a Q&A.

Though unaccompanied humans may purchase tickets, the finest seats will be in our limited VID (“Very Important Dog”) section, exclusively available to those accompanied by canines!

NOTE: Please do not attend if you are allergic to or afraid of dogs. There will be lots! All guests will be required to sign a waiver upon entry.

Doors at 4pm
Showtime at 4:30pm
