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.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie?
