Welcome to The Arts Society Hamburg

Carols at St Thomas à Becket Anglican Church, Zeughausmarkt 22

I would like to invite you and all Arts Society members to come and join us for a good old Christmas singalong on Sunday 4th December. 

 

There will be an interval for tea and cake, the choir will be there to keep us on track, and the Christmas Tree will be up in church. You can also request your favourites on the day (but no guarantees!) Everyone loves a 'good old sing-song' at Christmas, so this is a new gathering designed to fulfill just this desire. All are very welcome, and it should be a lovely do!

 

Revd Jules A. Barnes, Chaplain

Ballet in Film and Painting: Dancing is the Language of the Soul

In this lecture we will explore how ballet is seen as the purest expression of every emotion, earthly and spiritual. The film Red Shoes evocatively portrays the beauty, wonder and grace of ballet where there is no art without sacrifice. Other key films such as Black Swan and Billy Elliot will be opened up for analysis. The most beautiful paintings inspired by dance will also be discussed. These include works by Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas, Knight and Oppler.

 

Lecturer: John Francis

 

Location:  Hybrid Zoom and 'in-person' at Vortragsraum (first floor) Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek, Von-Melle-Park 3, 20146 Hamburg

 

 

The Arts Society Hamburg

The British Decorative and Fine Arts Society of Hamburg e.V. (BRIDFAS) was founded in 1987 to stimulate interest in the decorative and fine arts and to promote a greater awareness of international cultural heritage.

The Arts Society Hamburg provides an annual programme of illustrated lectures for its members, given in English, mostly by lecturers from the UK, chosen for their expert knowledge about the arts. Study days are also provided, as well as visits to museums and places of interest both in Germany and abroad.
