In spring 2017, Seattle Repertory Theatre will mount David Byrne’s Here Lies Love, an award-winning experiential musical extravaganza that tells the story of the People Power Revolution, which inspired the world and changed the Philippines forever. To tell this story, the Rep will transform the Bagley Wright Theatre into a dance club where audiences will be immersed in the world of the play, standing (and dancing) among the actors. This transformation requires us to remove some main-floor seating and construct a temporary superstructure to hold a dance floor, new seating galleries, raised platforms for the performers, and multi-media equipment. Here Lies Love will reimagine what theatre is and what it can be, intentionally pushing the boundaries of the theatre-going experience as we know it.
