The grand dance drama L’Amour Immortel is an adaptation of a story from classical Chinese literature, Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio, and one of Hong Kong’s classic movies in the 1980’s, A Chinese Ghost Story, produced by Tsui Hark. L’Amour Immortel reinterprets this classic tale from a contemporary perspective. A beautiful, bewitching ghost loses her heart to an honest, good-natured man and resolves to save him from evil forces, even at the cost of her own eternal afterlife. The lovers traverse a shadowy, mysterious underworld in their fight for love and freedom. Gripping, thrilling and passionate, this tale of forbidden love brings out the most beautiful of human values through the poignancy of a timeless ghost story.
L’Amour Immortel received the 2016 Hong Kong Dance Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Male Dancer, Outstanding Performance by a Female Dancer and Outstanding Set Design for Dance. “This mesmerizing set transitions smoothly to evoke locations and moods, from the mouth of hell to the room where the lovers meet.”
