Shira Yevin – Hot Dates Interview by Pauline Adamek from Arts Beat LAJune 02, 2017
What’s your show about?
My show is about memorable dates, literally and figuratively, in my lifetime- from girlhood milestones to attempted womanhood.
What was the inspiration for it?
I have always been obsessed with dates, and the concept of time. I studied performance art at UPenn with Deb Margolin, and since then have had the goal of doing a one-woman show. Last year, I took a Hollywood Fringe storytelling workshop with Deana Barone, and the dream rekindled. Being a single woman dating in LA, I meet a lot of other single ladies with similar frustrations and experiences, so this seemed like an ideal platform to broach the subject.
Will this be the first time you are performing this show?
Yes, this is a world premiere!
What is it about the Fringe that is so conducive to presenting solo shows?
The Fringe community is extremely supportive and receptive. There is also a real community vibe, it feels almost like a family.
Solo shows can be a tricky undertaking...
