Special events with Brighton Festival Guest Director Laurie Anderson
Laurie Anderson, Brighton Festival Guest Director and American performance artist who has experimented art at 360 degrees, in roles such as visual artist, composer, poet, photographer, filmmaker, vocalist, and instrumentalist, is hosting two special Brighton Festival events on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th of May.
