Dada Masilo | The dance factory – The Sacrifice

Choreography Dada Masilo
Music Tlale Makhene, Leroy Mapholo, Ann Masina, Nathi Shongwe

After Swan Lake, Carmen and Giselle, Dada Masilo returns to interpret the great ballet classics, this time approaching Stravisnkij’s Sagra della Primavera.
But it is not the fusion and overlapping of different dances and cultural backgrounds that moves the choreographer this time, who instead seems to turn to the minimalism and energy of Tswana dance, born in Botswana and unique in terms of rhythm and expressiveness. “Despite my training up to now I have never studied the Tswana movement – she says – and yet it is part of my culture and my origins”.
What is a sacrifice today? And is it really necessary for change? Starting from these questions, the choreographer builds a new narrative fabric that leads her to work on her identity: collective songs, rituals but also the pain and suffering that humans can inflict on each other.
With a community of 12 performers on stage, Dada Masilo presents her show as a question mark on the possibility of telling and writing a new story that can free us from cruelty.
