Yet the show still has all the laughs, the wonder, the excitement of any hypnotist show you’ll see anywhere else.

Entry to the show is free. There is no need to book; just turn up, but please let John Thornley know if you intend coming along just in case there is a change of time or venue.

Post-war Germany with Angela Findlay Friday 5 October, 6pm
College Theatre


A Circus event for all Upper Sixth pupils. Eastbournian Society members are welcome to attend.

After the end of the Second World War a collective silence descended over Germany and the horrors of the past were suppressed. Germany’s very specific situation rendered all traditional concepts of monuments and memorials irrelevant and inappropriate but in the 1980s certain artists resolved to create art forms that would confront Germans with their Nazi pasts and respond to questions of apology and atonement.

Angela Findlay’s Anglo-German roots, artistic background and years of research into the historical context in which her German grandfather operated as a decorated General in the Wehrmacht, puts her in an ideal position to give insights into Germany’s on-going efforts to find artistic forms for the remembrance of the victims of one of history’s darkest periods.

Entry to the talk is free. There is no need to book; just turn up, but please let John Thornley know if you intend coming along just in case there is a change of time or venue.
