HABEAS CORPUS, Laurie Anderson

HABEAS CORPUS, the new installation and performance by Laurie Anderson, RAAR 2006, premieres this month at the Park Avenue Armory. A press release by the Armory states, "Iconic performance artist Laurie Anderson expands upon her work fusing storytelling and technology, creating an installation and performance piece that examines lost identity, memory, and the resiliency of the human body and spirit. This gripping new artwork interweaves film, sculpture, music, and video to examine the story of Mohammed el Gharani, one of the youngest detainees at Guantanamo Bay." See reviews and a video clip.
