Her theatre work was read at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, and the Shunt Vaults, London, and most recently at Kettle’s Yard gallery, Cambridge.

    Praise for Stav Poleg '...Like the best cities, it's exhilarating: candid, paced, ever-changing and utterly captivating' 

    Maria Crawford, Financial Times 

    'The poems often feel like a high-wire act, careening through intricate scenery in a tone by turns playful and lonely. Poleg delights in language as creative material'

    Heather Green, Poetry Foundation
