Returning to The Old Chapel after two successful shows in the past, Wurlitza deliver so much more than a soundtrack to silent films. Their choreography, split second timing and hours of rehearsal combine to deliver a unique cinematic and musical experience. Blending old and new, classical, jazz, pop and more, Wurlitza cross genres and defy convention.
Their latest film is the The Kid: A life-affirming love story between a tramp (Charlie Chaplin) and his adopted son (Jackie Coogan). Originally advertised as "six reels of joy", The Kid broke all barriers of convention, being the first film to combine dramatic action, a strong storyline and slapstick comedy. It was Chaplin's first feature length film as a director and became the second-highest grossing film of 1921.
Their soundtrack for the Kid includes music by David Bowie, Sham 69, The Beatles, Nick Lowe, Django Reinhardt, Debussy and Chopin.
In a departure from Wurlitza's usual hard hitting films, The Kid is completely suitable for all ages. Wurlitza will be accompanying The Kid with another comic short film.
Wurlitza are a 5 piece band from Cornwall who specialise in adding their own unique soundtracks to silent film. They are gaining great acclaim with their original soundtracks - which include everything from Bach to the Buzzcocks.
