Ensemble Festival 24 July 2021
Joli Vyann – Don’t Drink and Dance
Joli Vyann present an innovative fusion of circus, dance and theatre – blurring the boundaries of dance and circus skills. Through the use of acrobatic tricks, fluid choreography and inventive characters, we create storylines that draw in audiences, firing their imaginations. This combination of surprise and enchanting physical journeys makes Joli Vyann’s work accessible to new and diverse audiences. Joli Vyann’s work is athletic, technical, exciting, emotive, sensitive and relevant. Don’t Drink and Dance is back by popular demand! The show was created in 2012 through the Gi20 commission with Watch This Space and Stockton International Riverside Festival, where it won the Audience Prize. Don’t Drink and Dance is larger than life, comical and charming. The show focuses on a cute and quirky relationship. A boy-meets girl-in-a-bar scenario with a twist, creating a playful yet impressive cocktail of technical skill, dance and storytelling.
The Ensemble Festival is in partnership with Without Walls who champion and support diverse work and accessibility in the arts
