About the Show Less...

A story about longing, memory and identity. Read More >

Fusing violin, electronic puppetry and music, Delusion is a story about longing, memory and identity. Jumping between the everyday and the mythic, in a world full of nuns, elves, golems, ghost ships, archaeologists and dead relatives, a complex tale is told, introducing a host of imaginary guests.

Conceived as a collection of short mystery plays, Delusion’s Laurie Anderson employs a series of altered voices to tell her narrative through colourful, poetic and pictorial language.
