Folly Ball Live

In the back of Overtuin at Oranjewoud stands a folly*, a stunning little temple. This small building inspired Paul and Menno de Nooijer to create a visual spectacle overflowing with absurd illusions. Behind the pillars of the little temple, the strangest apparitions take shape: a smashed guitar goes up in smoke, can the shark catch all those running guitarists? 

During the Night of the Park, you can see and hear various guitarists play variations on the famous chord progression of La Folia, one of the oldest themes in European music. But which guitarist is real and which is a life-size projection? In short, this promises to be an absurd festive ball in the folly of Oranjewoud. 

Paul and Menno de Nooijer are not your run-of-the-mill visual artists. The urge to manipulate the visible world, to lift everyday reality out of its context for a while and show it in a different form or from a different perspective is the leitmotif of all their photographic works and films. 

Izhar Elias, winner of the Nederlandse Muziekprijs, is one of the most versatile guitarists of today. His poetic style and boundary-pushing programming is based on extensive study of the historical performance practice, chamber music and contemporary music combined with multimedia. Izhar has produced numerous special live performances with Paul and Menno. During the previous edition of Oranjewoud Festival, they were part of the Night of the Park with their Moving Guitars collaboration. 

*A folly is a costly ornamental building with no practical purpose, especially a tower or mock-Gothic ruin built in a large garden or park. (Source: Oxford Languages) The term folly also means foolishness.
