Presented by Perth Festival

The classic romantic ballet Giselle is radically reimagined by South African dancer and choreographer Dada Masilo.

The setting is a South African village here the barefoot dancers perform a dazzling dance drawn from classical ballet, contemporary dance and traditional African ritual. The well-known story of betrayal, heartbreak and revenge is given a decidedly contemporary twist in a searing, stunning performance that will resonate in hearts and minds.

Masilo is world renowned for her bold reinterpretations of iconic ballets. Her ground-breaking version of Giselle brings together music by South African composer Philip Miller, visuals by renowned artist William Kentridge and electrifying performances from her dancers for one brilliantly bold and visceral experience.
