Dada Masilo’s Giselle – Perth Festival

Concert or Performance

28 Feb 2019 to 2 Mar 2019

The classic romantic ballet Giselle is turned on its head by South African dancer and choreographer Dada Masilo.

The setting is a South African village, where the barefoot dancers perform a dazzling dance drawn from classical ballet, contemporary dance and African ritual and the well-known story of betrayal, heartbreak and revenge is given a decidedly contemporary twist. The result is a searing, stunning performance that will resonate in hearts and minds.

Masilo’s radical reimaginings of classical ballets are world renowned. Her Swan Lake and Romeo and Juliet boldly deconstructed ballet’s gender and racial dynamics. In this ground breaking new version of Giselle, music by South African composer Philip Miller that features African percussion with elements of the original ballet score and visuals by renowned artist William Kentridge combine with electrifying dancing for an experience that is visceral, bold and unexpected.

This event is part of Perth Festival, one of Western Australia’s premier cultural events.
