Event Type: On Stage, Comedy
Having performed alone on the stages of the world well over seven thousand times, Pieter-Dirk Uys has learnt that every show is the first and the last performance, because each audience demands and gets a different energy, topicality and excitement. Now in his 70th year, Pieter-Dirk doesn`t glance back at the successes and failures that have strengthened his belief in a constant improvement of his work, but at those small signposts that throughout his life subconsciously pointed him in a right and original direction. His father Hannes Uys and his mother Helga Bassel. His grandmothers, his teachers, his passions. Sophia Loren, censorship, false eyelashes and making a noise when everyone demanded silence.
"This is just Pieter-Dirk Uys speaking and he opens his heart and talks about his private and public life. He leads you into his inner sanctuary, takes you through our history and shows us where what is public and private meet. Uys was and still is a voice in the wilderness. He remains a master storyteller who can make as much fun of himself as he does with the others who get a lashing from his sharp tongue. The packed auditorium rose as one with a "Bravo Pieter!" and the standing ovation was thunderous. An artist who can still cause a major traffic jam outside the theatre!"
