STROKE ASSOCIATION SCREENING
"11am, 11th November 2015, at age 46 I suffered a violent, sudden, unexpected event. I crashed to the floor with an ischaemic stroke and woke 8 hours later at King’s College hospital after being thrombolised. The following 24 hours were confusing and terrifying as I lost all sense of my left side. The following months were still confusing and in my rehabilitation I saw a new life. 17 months later I am still visiting a clinic or hospital each week. However life is wonderful."
This film is an attempt to share the very moment of Judy's stroke and the following few days through film and dance. The inner turmoil and hope in the scariest hours. It is a exploration of dance and camera work through choreographed and improvised material. It is the first dancing Judy Gordon has done since the stroke.
STROKE had the pleasure of being screened at the Stroke Association's London Art Show 2017 and The Motion Dance Collective are very honoured to have been able to make this film with such an inspirational artist.
