Hence the piece explores movements and places that make everything to be what it is”.
Redha’s Giselle is set in Apartheid South Africa and is very loosely based on the classic ballet where boy meets girl: Giselle. In Redha’s Giselle however, the boy in question is on the oppisite side of the colour divide, and love all but runs smoothly! Their youthful and innocent love results in conflict, violence and even death.

‘Hotel’ featuring compositions by Philip Miller and costumes by Robyn De Klerk, is a multi-layered, dance theatre work using Guillaume Apollinaire’s poem of the same name as an starting point.
