CIT CSM Graduates // ALSA Productions in 2017 Cork Midsummer Festival

ALSA Productions present

Swim/Stroke

23 June // 1pm & 6pm // Theatre Development Centre, Triskel Arts Centre

 

“I’m free in the sea…”

Breda is Al's aunt. She swims in the sea every day (in her togs). She drives a jeep and has over a dozen cats. She had a severe stroke in 2013 which left her paralysed down her dominant side.

In this work-in-progress showing, ALSA Productions present an intimate exploration of one woman's experience of surviving a stroke and defying the odds to regain her strength and independence. Performed by her nephew and drawing on her love of swimming, jazz and cats, Swim/Stroke uses original music, text, projections and voice recordings to tell this story of hope and defiance.
