  • NY TIMES

  • Opening Night:
    April 2, 2013
    Closing:
    June 30, 2013

    Theater: Public Theater / Delacorte Theater in Central Park, New York, NY,

    Synopsis: 

    Within a pulsating dance club atmosphere, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim deconstruct the astonishing journey of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos retracing her meteoric rise to power and subsequent descent into infamy and disgrace at the end of the People Power Revolution. HERE LIES LOVE is neither a period piece nor a biography, neither a play nor a traditional musical but an immersive theatrical event combining songs influenced by four decades of dance music, adrenaline-fueled choreography, and a remarkable 360-degree scenic and video environment to go beyond Imelda’s near-mythic obsession with shoes and explore the tragic consequences of the abuse of power.

There you’ll find yourself dancing hip by pelvis with one of the most notorious power couples of the 20th century.
