Laurie Anderson

Music For Dogs

UK Premiere

This event will go ahead as planned at Brighton Open Air Theatre tonight. Please dress for the weather.

‘Wouldn’t it be great if you’re playing a concert and you look out and everyone’s a dog,’ Laurie Anderson mused while waiting backstage with cellist Yo-Yo Ma. 

True to form, Anderson made her outlandish dream come true: first at the Sydney Opera House, and again in New York’s Times Square earlier this year, making headlines around the world. This 20-minute piece has been specifically designed for the canine ear, including frequencies audible only to dogs, as well as other sounds for humans to enjoy.

Contemporary Music
Tue 10 May, 6pm & 7.30pm
FREE (ticket required - limited capacity)

There is a £2 per order charge. Additional postage charges (50p or £1.50) apply

This concert is for dogs (and their owners). Tickets are for humans but each booking should include at least one dog. No unaccompanied humans (or dogs). Please come prepared to clean up if your four-legged friend gets too excited.
