Design Statement

Set against an eerie world of the dead, the grand dance drama "L’Amour Immortel" reinterprets this classic tale from a contemporary perspective. “Nie Xiaoqian”, a beautiful, bewitching ghost, is coerced by the devil of the netherworld to prey on humans; but when she meets “Ning Caichen”, a truthful, good-natured man, she loses her heart and is determined to save him from the evil force, even at the cost of her own afterlife.

In this performance, the lovers traverse the shadowy, mysterious underworld, fighting for love and freedom. Gripping, thrilling, and passionate, "L’Amour Immortel" unfolds the most beautiful human values with a poignant ghost story, hymning the purest of all hearts in a tale of forbidden love. In this world as in the other world, life can be transient, but love, and the beauty of our souls, is immortal.

“This mesmerizing set transitions smoothly to evoke locations and moods, from the mouth of hell to the room where the lovers meet. ”
