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 an original score performed live on stage, The Sacrifice is inspired by The Rite of Spring, combining the European heritage of this monumental piece with the uniquely rhythmic and expressive movements of ‘Tswana’ the traditional dance of Botswana. Rooted in story-telling and healing ritual, this all-South African company of dancers and musicians deliver an exhilarating performance that will transport you through a journey of emotions.
