Heart of a Dog: Concert for Dogs

Laurie Anderson

Times Square Advertising Coalition

We will be holding a special concert with Laurie Anderson for her Midnight Moment, Heart of a Dog on Monday, January 4 at 11:30 pm. In honor of the 9/11 first responder dogs to whom her film is partly dedicated, this unique performance by Laurie Anderson will be transmitted to "silent disco" headphones for humans and low-decibel speakers for dogs. The event will begin at 11:30pm to midnight to accompany the video playing on the electronic billboards from 11:57 pm to midnight. Headphones will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.

Laurie Anderson adapts her feature film, Heart of a Dog, which has been short-listed for an Academy Award, for Times Square. This unique edition of the film will be shown on Times Square’s electronic billboards from 11:57 pm to midnight from January 1-31. This project is a part of Midnight Moment, a monthly presentation by The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts.
