Don Pepijn Schipper (Don Diablo): ‘The story of Forever Young is very close to my heart. As an artist I’ve had years of experience with the lighter and darker sides of the modern age. We now live in a time where everything seems possible,but these endless possibilities also come with the price of constant pressure. The digital revolution offers plenty of opportunities, but also an equal amount of challenges. Mental health is an important theme and something we all need to continue to work on. Together. Forever Young is a next-generation love story presented in a one-of-its-kind futuristic theatre show. Our aim is not only to appeal to the audience’s mind but also to hit them in that special place in their heart.’

The technology, audio, video and special effects add the final touches to this interactive spectacle This show really moves us on to the next level and I simply can’t wait to take our audience on this visual journey, make them think and get them moving.’
