WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Part of the 2010 Next Wave Festival NY Premiere Pioneering performance artist Laurie Anderson opens the 2010 BAM Next Wave Festival with Delusion, a far-reaching work exploring memory and identity. In Delusion, deeply affecting music redolent of Tibetan temple horns and Arabic strings is performed by Anderson on electronically enhanced violin with a supporting virtuoso ensemble. Delusion's structure imitates the meandering nature of one's personal thoughts, exploring themes from politics to personal longings, fusing the internal and external worlds into a mystical whole.
