POLY QUEER LOVE BALLAD
March 13th - 17th at the SkirtsAfire Festival
After selling out its 2018 Vancouver Fringe Festival run, as well as its premiere with Queer Arts Festival, Zee Zee Theatre and the Frank Theatre, Poly Queer Love Ballad is coming to Edmonton for the SkirtsAfire Festival!
Poly Queer Love Ballad is a bold, intimate new musical, merging slam poetry with catchy pop-folk tunes. Nina, a polyamorous bisexual poet, meets Gabbie, a monogamous lesbian songwriter, at a Cafe Deux Soleils. With two microphones, a loop pedal, and array of instruments, they struggle to reconcile their fierce mutual attraction with their opposing perspectives on love. The show explores polyamory and queerness, while aiming to create a new representation of intimacy that isn’t confined by genre, medium or societal obligations.
