In 1885 Sarah Henley throws herself off a bridge. She lives. In 2015 Sarah talks about this and other things that push us over the edge. It is not about suicide, well, only a bit, it’s about love and what it makes us do. Inspired by real heart-breaking stories; some given, some found, some stolen.
An act of public self-help, absurd melodrama and poetic meanderings around our perpetual preoccupation with this pumping organ.
Winner of the 100˚ Jury Prize Berlin, making its UK debut.
