Swan Lake with an African twist!

Combining classic and contemporary dance that is strongly influenced by her African heritage, South African dancer and choreographer Dada Masilo creates explosive, passionate work. Her stunning new vision of one of the great classics of Western Dance, Swan Lake, is no exception.

Tchaikovsky’s music is spliced with Steve Reich and other contemporary composers. African dance mixes freely with classical ballet choreography.

Re-imagining this iconic ballet through a modern lens, Masilo’s company of twelve African dancers turn Swan Lake on its head to tackle issues of gender and homophobia in a country ravaged by AIDS.

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…
