The purpose of this conference is to investigate and evaluate the contribution of German-speaking exiles to the performing arts in Brian, asking: How did it enrich and how did it change prevailing British culture in the performing arts?

Austrian participants will include Brigitte Mayr and Michael Omasta who together run the Vinna-based film and media organisation Synema.  They have published two books on Wolf Suschitzky - one on his work as a photographer the other on his career as a cameraman.  They will present a paper on Suschitzky's contribution to UK culture as an Austrian exile.
