Come to Fireside at five o'clock for a same-face different-show experience every night with your favourite surrealist queer Canadian singer and hostess Ella Jean.

Ella showed up to the UK at the end of 2013 with a guitar and a loop pedal and no expectation for what would happen next. 5 years later, she's now 23, has a few more light-up buttons, and a solo show. Behind the anecdote of a fearless move across the Atlantic is in reality a very fearful female. In this show she explores what makes us most scared.

Sampling - the process by which electronic artists take pre-recorded (or live recorded) audio samples and manipulate them to sound different than from their original contexts. This is what hip-hop artists have done on turntables for years, as well as what fills the airwaves as familiar pop drum or synth sounds.

Improvising words and melodies from these samples will remind us that life exists in the now, not in the yesterday or tomorrow. Live improvised theatre is one of the pillars that draw people to Edinburgh every year because audiences and performers act in synergy to create something completely unique to an Edinburgh stage. Sometimes the present doesn't always go as planned, but it's the steps we take with unexpected circumstances which define us. Will fear hold you back or will you jump before you're ready?
