I went to meet with a Stroke Association Communication Support Group this week – talking about what life is like after stroke. It was pretty humbling. The conversation was the first stage of a project that seeks to find ways of representing some of those experiences using storytelling, dance and music. I will be collaborating with the saxophonist Jesse Bannister and the dancer Annika Kompart.
There will be a presentation of work in development in the Donald Roy Theatre at the University of Hull on April 21st at 7:30pm. It will be followed by a discussion with the audience and stake-holders.
This project is kindly supported by the Ferens Educational Trust.
