Dada Masilo's Giselle & AkomaAsa
Saturday 5 October 2019
This is a really exciting opportunity for AkomaAsa Performing Arts Academy to connect with the Dada Masilo company at Sadler’s Wells in a participatory workshop.
Young artists from AkomaAsa will engage in a workshop led by Dada Masilo company performers on stage. They will spend time exploring the themes and movement of Giselle and also have an opportunity to talk to and interview company members.
Giselle is a fantastic show - a dynamic and engaging fusion of contemporary, ballet and traditional Tswana dance. The choreography is fluid and expressive. Here are some new video clips created on a recent trip to South Africa to film Giselle in rehearsal. Dada and the show will be on tour and travel to 8 UK cities including Birmingham, Salford, Nottingham, Brighton and Canterbury.
Author Elijah Frederick (www.elijahfrederick.com) will be visiting AkomaAsa Performing Arts Academy to deliver a workshop on Saturday 28th September 2019. Young people will have the opportunity to buy personally signed and dedicated copies of his books.
Elijah Frederick is the author of Shifted Code and published his debut book at the age of 13 years old and has been on a spectacular journey ever since!
