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.
Swim/Stroke is 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.
Devised in collaboration with Laura Perrem | Arran MacGabhann | Aoife Cahill | Julie Daunt
