Laurie Anderson is the most famous performance artist in the world and a new work from her is always a cause for excitement. In this deeply personal essay she reflects on the connections between birth and death, dream and reality, human and animal.

At the heart of this Heart is her reflection on the death of her beloved terrier, Lolabelle, though this sets off a stream of consciousness that leads to the death of Anderson's mother and the unspoken loss of husband, Lou Reed.

Anderson's drawings, songs and family home movies become the basis of a moving reflection that draws together 9/11, piano-playing dogs, Tibetan Buddhism, stories about grey rabbits, ice skating and the inevitable dissolution of the self - all the elements with which we contemplate life as death approaches.
