Charming and nostalgic, with a modern twist.

By Arielle Smith
A film by Amy Becker-Burnett

Arielle Smith’s Jolly Folly is like your favourite dance number in an old movie musical: fast-paced, surprising, and full of uncontainable energy. Inspired by playful silent films of 1920s and 1930s Hollywood, Director Amy Becker-Burnett creates an elegantly mesmerising aesthetic that feels both timeless and fresh.

Dripping with charm and nostalgia, and driven by the Klazz Brothers’ latin-infused covers of Tchaikovsky, Strauss and Mozart, Jolly Folly will leave you grinning from ear to ear.

Dancers: Georgia Bould, Joseph Caley, Julia Conway, Daniel McCormick, Ken Saruhashi, Francesca Velicu, Erik Woolhouse, Rhys Antoni Yeomans
