Harbourfront Centre presents the Toronto premiere of award-winning South African choreographer Dada Masilo’s The Sacrifice as part of the international contemporary dance series Torque. Inspired by Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite Of Spring, Masilo roots her interpretation in Botswana’s rituals, rhythms and sounds. Together, the cast of ten dancers and four musicians explore the intricate balance between community, sacrifice and renewal in a fusion of traditional Tswana, the traditional dance of Botswana, and contemporary dance performed to an original live score.
