On the cusp of a pivotal national election, performance artist Laurie Anderson arrives at the Walker's McGuire Theater for three presentations of her latest solo endeavor, Dirtday!, in large part a meditation on the disunited state of the United States. Inspired in part by the Occupy Wall Street movement, Anderson has described Dirtday! as "a dreamscape of words" about the country's "aspirations and regrets," a theme in one form or another that has run through much of Anderson's career, from her surprising flirtation with popular success to her most avant-garde work. She'll tell stories, relate humorous and sobering anecdotes, play her violin, and try to make sense of things before the dirt really hits the fan a few days later. (Tim Knox)
