Uncensored: Banned and Burned

Arts & Culture

Uncensored: A Celebration of Banned Writing through the Ages is a series of events exploring censored work in different cultural and historical contexts. 

In the first part of our series, actors will read excerpts from a selection of canonical texts banned and burned by the Nazis. The list includes a range of ground-breaking work from Einstein's Theory of Relativity to Bambi, books published in the early 20th century which continue to define our world today. The evening will be interspersed with live music deemed degenerate by the Third Reich played by cellist, Francesca Ter-Berg.

This event is presented in association with Watford Palace Theatre. Watford Palace Theatre are currently producing Arthur Miller's Broken Glass, directed by Richard Beecham, running from 1-24 March. Click here for more information and tickets.

In an era of endless social media feeds and encroaching government control, the written word creates a new truth and collapses an old one every second. This series explores banned texts, giving voice to silenced words and harnessing the power of language.

In partnership with Index on Censorship
