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, Anderson employs a series of altered voices telling her narrative through colourful, poetic and pictorial language.

At the heart of Delusion is the pleasure of language yet a suspicion that the world might be made entirely of words. You begin with a blank mind…
