Written and performed by Laurie Anderson

Delusion Play Clip

At the heart of Delusion, an evening of Laurie Anderson's personal meditations on life, language, memory and identity, is the belief that words and stories can create the world, as well as make it disappear. Even if you've had the chance to see Anderson in concert or on screen, her full-scale, live performance art will sweep you away in a stunning collage of visual imagery, electronic soundscape and spoken vignette—the poetic language that has become Laurie Anderson's trademark.

“Lingers with you, long after the event, like a powerful dream."
The Financial Times, London

The Andersen Project

In this frequently comic masterpiece by theatre visionary Robert Lepage, Yves Jacques (The Far Side of the Moon) stars as a Canadian rock-‘n-roll writer who is unexpectedly commissioned by the Opéra Garnier in Paris to write a libretto for a children's opera. Arriving in Paris, he discovers that his living quarters are on the last floor of a building that is also home to a peep show in the city's red light district. Freely inspired by the timeless fables written by Hans Christian Andersen (who as it turns out, didn't really like children), as well as anecdotes from the author's personal diaries.
