What does it mean to have a body? What influence do social forces have on how you experience your body? And how can the body be a source of strength and resistance? Writer Olivia Laing takes you on a dizzying wander through the lives of Wilhelm Reich, Sigmund Freud, Susan Sontag, Nina Simone and Malcolm X, and shows how resistance, growth and change are possible from within our bodies. Moderator and theater maker Mirthe Frese will talk to Olivia Laing.
