Dada Masilo: The Bitter End of Rosemary
THE BITTER END OF ROSEMARY -
from and by Dada Masilo
Performances: June 27 and 28, 2014, at 7pm in Salle des Eaux-Vives de l’ADC Genève
82-84 Rue des Eaux-Vives
At 28 only, Dada Masilo is a new major figure of South-African dance.
With this solo, her challenge is to represent all the important and tragic female figures with her corteges of flowers, madnesses and deaths.
It is the mad Ophelia that the South-African Dada Masilo chose to incarnate. Mad, lost and naked. Dada-Rosemary-Ophelia confronts the world with her vulnerable being, she twists, rears, bridles, but nothing helps. And what if this madness was the truth of a simple body and a lucid being? Dada, Rosemary, Ophelia or all the oppressed women, mislead who are said to me mad or become mad. The ones who have only their energy and a few roses left to hold back their spirit that drifts away.
