About Sadler's Sampled: Dada Masilo - Swan Lake

Having trained at the Dance Factory in Johannesburg and the Performing Arts Research and Training Studios (PARTS), Masilo has become one of the most renowned choreographers in South Africa, winning a number of awards. Known for her reworking of classical ballets, she has previously realised new version of Romeo and Juliet and Carmen, touring worldwide.

In her newest creation Swan Lake, Masilo uses a company of thirteen male and female African dancers to revisit this great classic; its themes, Tchaikovsky’s music, its tutus and its pointes. Re-imagining this ballet through a South African eye, giving it a new breath and a new life, Masilo tackles the issues of sex, gender and homophobia in a country ravaged by AIDS.

There will be some spoken text in English, and surtitles in English.
