Deon Meyer and Coenie de Villiers (pictured left) will stage Karoo Suites at Cape Town’s drive-in theatre at Atlantic Studios.
Their popular Karoo Suite productions have been described as the “most beautiful love letter to the Karoo”. Both shows, Karoo Suite and Karoo Suite 2 Karoonagte, will be performed on 30 April and 1 May 2021 at Cape Town’s Atlantic Studios drive-in theatre.
Band and visuals
Deon Meyer will be on stage to narrate his stories from the Karoo, with musical accompaniment provided by De Villiers and a band. Music will be provided by Mauritz Lotz on guitar, Jaconell Mouton on keys, David Klassen on drums and percussion, and Coenie de Villiers at the piano.
Photos and video material of the Karoo landscape from photographers of National Geographic, NASA and Deon Meyer himself, will complement the shows. Animation by Diek Grobler will also be presented.
Meyer and De Villiers are a formidable combo on stage. Since its sold-out debut at various festivals, Karoo Suite has captivated audiences nationwide. The productions consist of various movements that explore the Karoo landscape, its people, their joys and sorrows.
For the Cape Town productions, Meyer and De Villiers joined hands with Atlantic Studios, Suidoosterfees, KKNK, the Jakes Gerwel Foundation and CTMA.
