Laurie Anderson's multi-media performances are always extraordinary and this was no exception. A series of commentaries and meditations, the last segment, about the death of her mother, was most affecting. The music encore she played with a violin-like instrument and two saxaphones was simply beautiful, actually out of this world.

Quotes & Highlights
“A wizard behind a curtain, without the curtain.” —_The New York Times _
“Smart, funny, emotionally engaging, and flat-out beautiful—in short, everything you’d expect from an artist of Anderson’s stature and reputation.” —straight.com
At the heart of this new multimedia work from brilliant storyteller Laurie Anderson is the pleasure of language. Conceived as a series of short mystery plays and inspired by the breadth of Balzac, Ozu, and Laurence Sterne, Delusion bridges the everyday and the mythic, evoking a world filled with nuns, elves, golems, rotting forests, ghost ships, archaeologists, dead relatives, and unmanned tankers.
Employing a series of altered voices and imaginary guests, Anderson combines her signature violin pieces, electronic puppetry, music, and visuals, with the poetic language that has become her trademark to tell a complex story about longing, memory, and identity. The work comes to Zellerbach Hall following its debut at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
