'D-llusion' explores perceptions of body-image seen through a young woman's eyes. As she battles with her psyche she percieves herself through media sound-bites and through her 'mirror image'. An unheatlhy obsession with her reflected image results in her image being distorted. Is the reflection in the mirror an apparition, a psychological nemesis; is the image real, or a figment of a delusional mind?
Choreographer: Gerrard Martin
