Hi all,

Here is an extract from a review by Gia Kourlas in The New York Times, April Protected content

"Reworking ballets isn’t new to Ms. Masilo, whose previous works are “Swan Lake,” “Carmen” and “Romeo and Juliet.” She brings an emphatic urgency to her character — she moves with clipped efficiency. ...
Mixing contemporary dance and traditional Tswana movement, the dancers shower the stage with brisk, complex footwork and forceful arms. Ms. Masilo’s Giselle is a feminist. While Adolphe Adam’s music is referred to, the score is a contemporary one by the South African composer Philip Miller."
