Laurie Anderson- O Superman

I remember being blown away by the experimental aspects of Laurie’s initial projects (and variously throughout her career). She defined avant-garde in a way that very few others did, as a solo act.

Make a list called “Superheroes” & add a second list called “Vigilantes.” Add to them during today’s course. They might be Cat Girl and Rosa Parks. Or Batman and Butch Cassidy. Wonder Woman and Patty Hearst. Be creative- they could also be people from your own life- Roger, or grandma, UPS guy, or second cousin Antonia.
