One of America’s most renowned and daring creative pioneers, Laurie Anderson returns to FirstWorks with a multimedia performance combining violin,electronic puppetry, music and visuals.

At the heart of “Delusion” is the belief that words can create the world, as well as make it disappear. Laurie Anderson’s meditation on life, language and memory will sweep you away in a stunning collage of imagery, electronic soundscape and spoken vignette.

With additional support from BAM for the 2010 Next Wave Festival; Cal Performances UC Berkeley; Stanford Lively Arts, Stanford University, generously supported by Sarah Ratchye and Ed Frank.
