Dada Masilo / The Dance Factory - Giselle

September 25 to 29, 2018

Dance
Downtown - Quartier des spectacles

“To dance is to take a stand”. The Johannesburg-born dancer and choreographer has clearly shown that it is possible to entertain people and make them think at the same time.

Her Giselle—a young girl who dies after being betrayed by a man—is resolutely feminist. Powerful themes such as grief and revenge coalesce on stage, expressed through uniquely inventive movement. Dada Masilo likes dance that dances, and she likes to work with a truly dazzling company of artists. Add a musical score by Philip Miller that combines elements of classical music and African percussion, and you get a defiantly contemporary Giselle.

Once again, Dada Masilo plays around with the past to convey a present reality.
