A young girl dies after having been betrayed by a man. She cannot rest in peace and is transformed into a wili, a ghost with a desire for dance - and revenge. Acclaimed South African choreographer Dada Masilo, who stunned audiences around the world with her feminist revisions of Carmen, Romeo & Juliet and Swan Lake, takes on another classic in her distinctive style of African dance and classical ballet performed at astonishing speed.
Recommended for 14+. Mature content, language and nudity.
