Salon de la Vie – Season Three – Valentine Special
10th February 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Mark your diaries! Salon de la Vie is back for Season Three on the 10th February 2021 with a Valentine Special!
✮ February 10th 2021
Join us on the 10th February for an alternative and feminist take on Valentines Day and all things romantic love.
We’ve got nothing against love – in fact, we love it – but Valentine’s Day in particular can feel a bit commercial and sickly… or if you’re single, it can be a slap in the face.
So, our Valentine special Salon de la Vie is going to be a very different take on romance – less hearts, flowers and Hallmark, more celebration of all of the catastrophes and insanities of love!
Artistic Director Rebecca Mordan is going to be looking at some of the myths and stereotypes about the season through a feminist lens and with tongue firmly in cheek. We’ll be deconstructing some traditional romantic tropes and presenting some feisty alternatives! Expect some bitter and twisted stories along with the happy endings, where, while love wins, Prince Charming is not the end game.
We’re delighted to welcome back our friend Kudzanayi Chiwawa who will make a special appearance performing a poem called Humanity, Gaia’s Young Lover, Replies to Her Break-up Letter by Dorothea Smartt.
People at all points of the romantic spectrum are welcome – so whether you are in, out of or over love, this is the night for you. So tear up your cards and bin the flowers, because after this evening you’ll never see Valentine’s Day the same way again!
Get into the mood with our specially curated Valentine’s playlist, celebrating love in all its guises – not just the mushy hearts-for-eyes kind, but also the unrequited, the messy, the vengeful and the self-love!
About Salon de la Vie
Hosted by Scary Little Girls’ Rebecca Mordan, Salon de la Vie is a series of fortnightly 15 – 20 minute extravaganzas of songs, storytelling, merriment and conversation, focusing each time on an awe-inspiring, remarkable and brave human from the world of film, music, literature and history, drawing parallels with the achievements of activists today, to celebrate how people positively embody the change they want to see in the world, for themselves and for others. And we’re super proud that each salon has a custom illustration provided by the wonderful Jacky Fleming.
Come along every other Wednesday evening to join in with our singing, celebration and joy!
We’d like to thank our amazing funders Arts Council England for supporting this project
