Still Falling by Sara Hirsch
From ex lovers to total strangers, no one is spared in this deeply moving, life affirming descent into death, dreams and determination, that laughs in the face of an easy life. We all stumble at some point. With her boundless optimism and inspired wordplay, Sara Hirsch invites you to join her in enjoying the fall.
Sara Hirsch is a London based performance poet with punch. As a trained actress with a terrible writing habit, she finally put two and two together in late 2013 and embarked on a career in spoken word. Soon after, Sara was crowned UK Slam Champion and subsequently came third in the World Slam Championships in 2014. She now runs London's only regular three round slam as well as Hammer & Tongue's newest addition in Waterloo. Sara has recently returned from a tour of New Zealand, has headlined across the UK including Bristol, Edinburgh, Cambridge, London, Brighton, Oxford and Manchester, has performed at Glastonbury and Latitude and has had her work featured on BBC Radio 2. After premiering her debut, award winning solo show How Was It For You? at the Edinburgh Fringe 2015, Sara embarked on an MA in Spoken Word Education at Goldsmiths University and currently works in schools and communities, inspiring and educating through poetry and performance. Sara is known for her deeply personal, witty and heartfelt poetry, for her powerful performances and for her penchant for haikus, normally involving an awful pun. In a desperate attempt at self promotion, Sara is trying to get more Twitter followers. Let her know what you think of her ridiculous handle @sarsbars89
