Dada Masilo's The Sacrifice | Brighton Dome | The Story
‘This is a show that is done by dancers and musicians. But the different thing from our show, compared to other shows, is that the musicians and the dancers; we are always together.’- Mpho Mothiba, percussionist.
When she first heard The Rite of Spring, Dada thought, ‘how can music be so discordant?’ Just as experimental, the music for The Sacrifice has been inspired by Stravinsky’s complex rhythms but is rooted in South Africa and draws on stories of personal loss.
