Suggested donation: €5
Our host this month will be poet Sahar Ali, who will be welcoming poets, prose writers, songwriters and musicians, comedians and anyone else who wants to have a go at our monthly open mic night. Sign up to perform over on Eventbrite.
Sahar is a rising star in Dublin’s arts community. She has performed in the Lingo Festival, the Dublin Literature Festival, Body & Soul and the Vodafone Comedy Festival 2017 before a sold out show (Saharcasm) at the Dublin Fringe Festival 2017. Sahacasm was a fresh perspective on modern Ireland. Taking examples from everyday life, it negotiates the subconscious prejudices that underline the interpersonal relationships in the land of ‘céad míle fáilte’. Sahar has featured on the critically acclaimed drama AMC’s Into the Badlands. Sahar is also a prolific blogger and provides regular observations and thoughts on her blog Saharcasm which served as a basis for many performances.
A few things to note:
– Five mins per performer
– Slots are on a first come, first served basis
