NW Live Arts presents its first ever full-length online event, premiering a film of the ‘Music & Body’ concert, recorded on 25th September, 2020. Music & Body traces the migrant journey from Africa and the Middle East to Europe: juxtaposing virtuoso musicians with writers from Freedom from Torture's ‘Write to Life’ refugee writing group and presenting music and readings that explore the body as saviour and burden.
