A re-imagining of the iconic classic, Giselle. Opening in a lively South African village, Masilo's Giselle tells the story of a trusting peasant girl who is thrust into a world of betrayal and shame when her lover rejects her. Spurned by her family and killed by heartbreak, Giselle returns from the grave as a supernatural being, bent on revenge. Performing in the title role, Masilo brings her stunning high-speed style to the stage, fusing ballet, contemporary and traditional Tswana dance. Powered by a hauntingly beautiful score by South African composer Philip Miller who combines classical strings with African percussion and voice, this is Giselle, but not as you know it.
