Concert for Dogs

Playing with melodies, frequencies and riffs she has composed especially for dogs, Laurie Anderson presents the latest in her series of Concerts for Dogs. The Gold Coast show will be a short concert for dogs and humans and feature several new themes and elements. Since her first concert on the steps at the Opera House in Sydney in 2010 for Vivid Festival, there have been many developments in the series as it unfolded in places like Times Square (in sub zero weather) and an amphitheatre in Brighton. Following the concert will be a screening of her acclaimed film, Heart of a Dog (2015). Inspired by her terrier Lolabelle and dedicated to her late husband Lou Reed, the film explores what it is like to love and have been loved in return.

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts, Canal Street Communications and Pomegranate Arts.
