Mixing get-on-the-dance-floor music, rap and spoken word, Love Songs explores the personal and political puzzles of our love lives through the autobiographical poems of a hopeless romantic.
It is a classic tale of classroom crushes and awkward bedroom encounters – a cautionary guidebook on how to navigate the millennial dating scene – and a glimpse under the covers at our deepest desires and the all-consuming fear of ending up alone. Enlisting the help of everyone from the audience to Adele, Queen B to Busted, and Marvin Gaye to Janelle Monáe, Love Songs hopes to be something that’s all too relatable, but just a little bit different.
Why? Because ultimately, this is a story about learning to love yourself.
