Here Lies Love tells the story of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos and her meteoric rise to fame…followed by her rapid decline into infamy. The show chronicles Marcos’ transformation from a young dreamer to a nationally recognized ruler, charting her marriage to despot Ferdinand Marcos and her romance with opposition leader Ninoy Aquino.
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 from childhood to her 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 a wholly 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 true tragic consequences of power and responsibility.
