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.
Post-Show Q&A with the company on Tue 28 Mar. Free to The Sacrifice ticket holders.
