“Rehearsed and recorded across Zoom, I Look For The Think brings together sixty stroke survivors from London, Berkshire and Bristol with Garsington Adult Community Company”
I Look For The Think is a short opera by Orlando Gough rehearsed and recorded over Zoom with sixty stroke survivors from London, Reading and Bristol, bringing together isolated and vulnerable people at the height of lockdown. On World Stroke Day (29th October) it will be screened at NHS' Royal Berkshire Hospital and streamed online.
The opera is part of arts health intervention Stroke Odysseys, which started in 2013 to support stroke survivors and their carers alongside healthcare professionals. Their handbook Recovering Hope will also be launched on World Stroke Day.
