Poly Queer Love Ballad

By Anais West and Sara Vickruck

After the workshop version played to sold out houses at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, Poly Queer Love Ballad returns to Vancouver for it's World Premiere!

Poly Queer Love Ballad is an intimate, edgy new musical merging slam poetry with catchy pop-folk tunes. Nina, a polyamorous bisexual poet, meets Gabbie, a monogamous lesbian songwriter, at Cafe Deux Soleil. 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 complicated intimacy between old-fashioned romantic Gabbie ...and polyamorous Nina... is beautifully mapped in Vickruck’s songs and West’s passionate poems" —The Georgia Straight

“...the tenderness and rapture of this story made me weep big, nostalgic tears. —Colin Thomas, colinthomas.ca
