Writers from writing and performance group ‘Write to Life’ at Freedom from Torture
Join NW Live Arts for a concert exploring identity and our sense of place in the world. This imaginative programme features an unusual combination of instruments performing contemporary music to familiar and less familiar classical music, middle eastern music as well as improvisations and a new piece for this unique ensemble. Interwoven with the music are readings from Write to Life, the acclaimed writing and performance group from Freedom from Torture. Together with the musicians they celebrate the distinctive nature of each individual contribution, and the special magic that happens when many traditions come together
The programme includes early music by Dowland, Scarlatti and Lully, solo piano works by Satie and Bach alongside contemporary works by Birtwistle, Fasil Say, Ligeti and Attab Haddad and inspiring improvisations.
Please note due to unfortunate circumstances percussionist Antonio Romero is now unable to perform as previously advertised. We are thrilled that Andres Ticino has agreed to join us for this concert in his place.
