Quarterhouse welcomes Edinburgh Fringe Star
Combining 'get-on-the-dance-floor music, rap and spoken word, Alissa Anne Jeun Yi’s Love Songs is a new look at the dating scene
A classic tale of classroom crushes and awkward bedroom encounters, Love Songs is a cautionary guidebook on navigating the millennial dating scene; and a glimpse under the covers at our deepest desires and the all-consuming fear of ending up alone.
A one-woman show (about many men) that is surprisingly relatable, but a little bit different, Love Songs mixes get-on-the-dance-floor music, rap and spoken word to explore the personal and political puzzles of our love lives, through the personal poems of a hopeless romantic.
