Silent Movies/Burlesque

Since college I have become fascinated by silent films from the most famous Charlie Chaplin to my personal favourite Theda Bara, I'm intrigued by the sinister values in her performances as well as her glamours style she was the femme fatale of her time and her work is interesting and haunting as well as admirable and beautiful.



As silent films are no longer being made (not that I am aware of anyways? ha!) I have become very interested in the dance art form of burlesque, it's a cheeky captivating theatrical performance that involved parody and exaggeration as well as glamor and raunchness without being too vulgar and too on show.



The artists formerly known as The Hurly Burly Girlys invite you to indulge your senses in London's electrifying new Burlesque Troupe....The Folly Mixtures!

Inside our sexy selection box of Burlesque Beauties, you will find a heady mix of Dance, Song, Circus and Striptease. The Folly Mixtures' show aims to bring you classic Burlesque with a contemporary twist, mixing the old with the new.

Come tickle your taste buds and be inspired by an evening you wont forget.

The Folly Mixtures - Something for everyone.


I found out about this London group that were formerly the 'Hurly Burly Girlys' by receiving a friend request on facebook from them. I automatically fell in love and wanted to know more they are pretty new but from researching into the 'Hurly Burly Girlys' I saw that they have had press realeases in 'Time Out' magazine, appeared on the Alan Titchmarsh show as well as radios across London, even famous faces like Richard O'Brian and Zac Efron have appeared in the audience from their popular West End shows.

I'm pretty excited to watch them develop. I love how burlesque has formed and has carried on going with their over exaggeration and cheeky scenes that resemble the silent movies the cheekiness of the glamour and the sex, it's fun, it's passionate, it's inspiring and it's vintage and I think these girls can bring it big style!
