Laurie Anderson: Moby Dick 1999-04-30 Dallas, TX

1 lid

Laurie Anderson wrote in the program notes that the genesis of her new show, Songs and Stories from Moby Dick, was a proposed series about classic books for high school students. From this she created a multi-media piece based on Herman Melville's Moby Dick. In the production, Anderson emphasized Melville's writing (rambling sentences, lyrical poems, re-configured Biblical references, lapses of iambic pentameter) and narrative style (constant shifting of character voice) thereby revealing an epic tragedy worth rediscovery. Filmed performance from McFarlin Auditorium in Dallas, TX. Sony Digital Tape > DVD Recorder > DVD Shrink
