Overview

Could our genes affect our romantic choices? Does love inhabit a particular region of the brain? If this song makes us too sad to drive straight, why are we playing it on repeat?

Rapper and essayist Dessa hosted her four-event series in The Greene Space in May 2017 – a collision of art, music and scientific research on love, sex and human adventures in pair-bonding.

The Greene Space is funded by you.
