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
