LA MER

2018 is the 100th anniversary of Claude Debussy’s death.  To celebrate this, Debussy’s masterwork La Mer (part of it composed when Debussy stayed in Eastbourne) is realised in a newly devised multi-media performance by dancers from Trinity Laban, choreographed by Tony Thatcher, with projections by Stephen Johnstone.

 

Helen Caddick’s composition Bright Planet provides the inspiration for a new dance work created by Deal Festival’s Let’s Dance project with pupils from Goodwin Academy.  Performance times to be advertised on Deal Music and Arts website with full details of activities throughout the day.

DAVID STARKEY

HENRY VIII - THE FIRST BREXITEER

 

7.30pm St. George’s Church, Deal

 

Henry VIII, like a colossus, bestrides the history of our country. He invented the idea of British uniqueness; in fact, the Reformation could be defined as the first Brexit, when his ministers devised the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty. In this talk David Starkey draws on his unique knowledge of Henry’s reign to examine his tumultuous personal life, which pitted religion against politics as brutally as in our own age of ISIS, through to the Grand Tourists who bought European culture with British money, all offering so very many parallels with the Brexit situation we find ourselves in today.

 

Ticket Prices:  Full £16.00 Students £8.00

Tickets available from The Astor Community Theatre, Deal on 01304 370220 or online www.astor.org
