“Laurie Anderson is a singer-songwriter of crushing poignancy.” —Rolling Stone
One of the seminal artists of our time, Laurie Anderson’s genre-crossing work combines performance, film, music, installation, writing, photography, and sculpture. Using violin, electronic puppetry, and visuals, Delusion tells its story in the colorful and poetic language that has become Anderson’s trademark. Conceived as a series of short mystery plays, Delusion jump-cuts between the everyday and the mythic to tell a complex story about longing, memory, and identity. Inspired by the decline of her mother, and employing a series of altered voices and imaginary guests, Delusion is about the pleasure of language and the possibility of a world made entirely of words.
