Masala the Musical

26 August 2017 at 8pm

“a Story of the Bo-dorp about people who learn that things end but memories last forever”.

Deur middel van satire, sang, musiek, dans, drama, digkuns en ‘n mudsak vol humor, vertel Masala die storie van die destydse Bo-dorp – ‘n kosmopolitaanse dorpie midde-in die dorp, Beaufort-Wes waar gemeensaamheid gedy het ongeag ras, kleur of geloof. Waar Ubuntu sentraal gestaan het; waar bure alles met mekaar gedeel het – van ‘n knypie Kaneel tot ‘n moersleutel – die hartseer van armoede, maar ook die vreugde van ‘n bord sondigsoete meelpap! Dis die storie van ‘n groep mense wat die swaarkry met lekkerkry klaargekry het en wat geleer het dat dinge verdwyn, maar herinneringe vir ewig hou….

LEON GROPP – ROOIDAG – NP van Wyk Louw

9 Sept 2017 at 8pm

Rooidag – NP VAN WYK LOUW getoonset en gesing! – Dit is beslis ‘n waagstuk om een van die gootste ikone van die Afrikaanse literêre wêreld se poësie ter noot te stel – oorweldigend en intimiderend. Maar wanneer iets met jou resoneer, dan gryp jy met dringendheid ‘n pen en (in my geval) ‘n kitaar, en jy griffel. Ek noem hierdie ‘n liefdes- of hartsprojek, omdat die gedigte my na aan die hart lê. Dit bring hopelik die meesterlikheid en nalatenskap van N.P van Wyk Louw na ‘n wyer gehoor. Die musiek is van so aard dat dit sal aanklank vind by jonk en oud, en dit gee geleentheid aan veral jonger mense om die woordkrag van N.P van Wyk Louw te ervaar, al is dit deur n musiekmedium. “Rooidag” is ‘n hartsprojek wat bestaan uit gedigtoonsettings van N.P van Wyk Louw.

Coenie de Villiers

16 September 2017 at 8pm

Coenie de Villiers is bekend as een van Suid-Afrika beste liedjieskrywers en uitvoerende kunstenaars: sy liedjies is volksbesit! Coenie is terug op die verhoog met ‘n musikale kragtoer: in hierdie konsert hoor ons sy skeppende energie volstoom aan die werk. Sy twintigste album, Emoji, is aan die einde van verlede jaar uitgereik en dis duidelik hy bly steeds die klawer-towenaar wat gehore deur die jare bekoor het. Daar is ook min twyfel dat hy steeds die toonaangewende liriekskrywer in Afrikaans is. Dis nuut, maar steeds onmiskenbaar Coenie: die bekende liedere wat nou volksbesit is, maak ‘n kamee-verskyning; dan is daar natuurlik nuwe komposisies wat nog nie so bekend is nie.

Pieter Dirk Uys & Kaktus of Separate Development

2 March 2018 at 8pm

Tannie Evita Bezuidenhout takes on the roots of our Rainbow. The problems of the past, the issues of the day and the hopes for the future – all in the hands of the most famous white woman in the African National Congress, who now proves that there is freedom of speech in Luthuli House. It is just sometimes after speech that freedom goes. Pieter-Dirk Uys presents a production that is as slightly woven as Afrikaner correctness, but brilliantly disrespectful and laced with a moral twist to fit into our contemporary vernacular. “If anything, Uys teaches us to laugh at ourselves and not take ourselves too seriously. This an absolute treasure. The show is brilliant. * * * * * ” Leon van Nierop

Pieter Dirk Uys’ One man memoir the Echo of the Noise

3 March 2018 at 8pm

Pieter-Dirk Uys has taken South Africa by storm with his provocative and deeply personal memoir The Echo of a Noise. It is a story that aches to be heard and Uys knows how to keep his audiences on the very edge of their seats waiting to hear about the great influences in his life: his father Hannes Uys and mother Helga Bassel, and of course his unlikely pen friend, the beautiful Sophia Loren. His masterful story telling, wit and wisdom are generously shared. Jokes about the censor board being his own personal public relations department, gently disguise the reality that each time he tread the boards, he crossed lines and stepped on quite dangerous toes. He has always used humour as a “weapon of mass distraction” and describes the laughter he evoked as a relief from the fears that shaped South African society in 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. PDU unpowdered!
