Dada Masilo - Giselle

We do not curently have theatre breaks available for Dada Masilo - Giselle. This could be because we have simply sold out or it could be that this show is no longer running. The information on this page remains purely for historical and informational purposes.

South African choreographer Dada Masilo is not afraid of reinventing a classic.

Her Swan Lake, which opened Sadler’s Wells Sampled in 2014, placed her male Odile in pointe shoes.

For Giselle, Masilo places the definitive Romantic heroine in South Africa.

Deserted by her lover, Giselle, danced by Masilo herself, is guided by a Sangoma, a traditional healer, in a trailblazing feminist take on the classical ballet.

Featuring a contemporary score by South African composer Philip Miller, which pays homage to the Adolphe Adam’s score, and traditional Tswana dance styles, Masilo’s Giselle is a fearless exploration of betrayal and revenge.
