Direction and choreography
South Africa, 1985
Dada Masilo is one of the most famous choreographers and dancers in her country, acclaimed for her original and daring reinterpretations of classical ballets such as Romeo and Julieta and Carmen, for which she has received numerous awards. Though young, she has toured the world with her pieces - eclectic fusions of classical, contemporary and African dance – touching on themes such as racism and homophobia. Her pieces have been performed at important venues such as Sadler's Well in London, the Joyce Theater in New York, the Lyon Dance Biennale, the Quai Branly Museum and the Théâtre du Rond-Point in Paris.
