About the show

Dada Masilo’s
The Sacrifice
UK Premiere

South Africa’s award-winning Dada Masilo wowed critics and audiences with her
stunning re-imagining of Giselle in 2019. Now back by popular demand, Masilo and
her company of incredible dancers return with the UK premiere of The Sacrifice.

Masilo has always been fascinated by different dance forms, fusing ballet with
modern and traditional dance to present classic stories with a new twist.

Featuring live music on stage, The Sacrifice is inspired by Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite
of Spring, combining the European heritage of this monumental piece of music with
the uniquely rhythmic and expressive movements of ‘Tswana’ the traditional dance
of Botswana. Rooted in story-telling and healing ritual, Masilo and her dancers
deliver an exhilarating performance that will transport you through a journey of
emotions.
