When was the last time you loved someone and let them change you?

Following a year of quarantine in the afterlife, Edith Piaf descends to Earth to share her perspective on love, loss, and desire in the pandemic era. Inspired by the life and music of La Môme Piaf, Love Notes: A Year of No Regrets is a 12-month art engagement that asks the question: What if you told your story as if you were a legend?

With an international cast featuring John Jarboe, Daniel de Jesús, Malgorzata Kasprzycka, Tareke Ortiz, Jackie Soro, and Mary Tuomanen, the experience unfolds over the course of a year. Each month, receive a new piece of the project, sent directly to your inbox or mailbox. See below to tailor your experience so it fits just as comfortably as your favorite black dress.
