Here Lies Love
concept and lyrics by David Byrne
music by David Byrne and Fatboy Slim
additional music by Tom Gandey and J Pardo
choreographed by Annie-B Parson
directed by Alex Timbers
Seattle Rep’s Bagley Wright Theatre transforms into a wild dance party, where techno beats spin and tell the story of the People Power Revolution that inspired the world and changed the Philippines forever. Here Lies Love traces the non-violent restoration of democracy in the Philippines in 1986 and follows the meteoric rise and dramatic fall of the controversial First Lady of the Philippines, Imelda Marcos. Two-time Tony-nominated director Alex Timbers helms David Byrne (Talking Heads) and Fatboy Slim’s one-of-a-kind “poperetta” about the Filipina “Steel Butterfly” and the power of the people.
Originally produced by The Public Theater in New York.
