Akram Khan, Egon Schiele and Francesca Woodman exhibition, soldier-turned-novelist Kevin Powers

Iconic dancer and choreographer Akram Khan shows John around his studio at his home and discusses a life of dance, preparing for his final solo performance and what he plans to do now that he is retiring from the stage. The Austrian artist Egon Schiele features alongside a young American photographer Francesca Woodman in a new exhibition Life In Motion at Tate Liverpool. The artists used their own naked bodies as the focus for their work at different ends of the 20th century and both died prematurely in their 20s. Co-curator Tamar Hemmes discusses the unlikely pairing. The writer and former US soldier Kevin Powers gave the reader a visceral experience of the war in Iraq in his novel The Yellow Birds following his tour of duty there. Powers discusses his new novel A Shout in the Ruins, in which he gives us a similar experience, but this time focused on the American Civil War. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Hannah Robins.…read more
