The Black Swan

Dada Masilo is a South African choreographer and dancer who has studied both classical ballet and modern dance but who actively integrates traditional African dance into the mix. Her rendition of Swan Lake as well as Carmen and Romeo and Juliet, have caused quite a stir in South Africa - for disturbing not only racial but also gender stereotypes. Masilo herself plays the lead swan in this version, with her male friend Boysie Dikobe playing Odile.
