Information

An all-South African company of dancers and musicians deliver this exhilarating performance that will transport you through a journey of emotions, powered by original music performed live on stage.

Celebrating the advent of Spring, a young girl is chosen as a sacrifice and dances herself to death as part of an ancient ritual.

Inspired by The Rite of Spring, award-winning choreographer Dada Masilo presents a fusion of contemporary dance with the expressive movements of ‘Tswana’, the traditional dance of Botswana, rooted in story-telling and healing ritual.

Dada Masilo is celebrated for her reinvention of classic stories, mining her own cultural heritage to create a distinctive choreographic style. She wowed us with her stunning reimagining of Giselle in 2019. Now back by popular demand, audiences are in for a new treat with The Sacrifice.
