The New Stage Production by Nataniël opens at Emperors Palace
February 2009 sees Nataniël bringing his latest creation, Coronation, to the fitting venue – Theatre of Marcellus at Emperors Palace, the Palace of Dreams from Thursday, 5th of February, 2009.
A king too shy to appear in public, a dictator eating his subjects, a pregnant beauty queen, a commander in love with the enemy, through the ages history has provided us with countless examples of the unbelievable and the royally insane. Coronation takes a look at the madness and absurdity of power and those whose lives are ruled by it, those who will die in pursuit of it, those who will die being oppressed by it, those who will die defying it and those not realizing they are in possession of it.
Nataniël shares the stage with Charl du Plessis (keyboards), Juan Oosthuizen (guitar), Corné Dannhauser (bass), Tonia Selley (percussion), Vincenzo Henrico (drums), Adriana (violin), Wynand Dacel (violin), Elizabeth Rennie (viola) and Jacques-Pierre Malan (cello).
70% English and 30% Afrikaans, the show is fantastical, hysterical, dramatic, direct, honest, disturbing, visually breathtaking, always entertaining, Nataniël brings his view of modern society to the stage like never before. It’s a show not to be missed!
Script, music and staging is by Nataniël and costumes are by Floris Louw.
A selection of Cd’s, books and products from the Kaalkop range will be available at all performances. The show runs in the Theatre of Marcellus from the Thursday, 5th of February until Sunday, 15th of March, 2009 from Wednesdays to Saturdays at 20h30 and on Sundays at 15h00.
Tickets are from R115 available at the Emperors Palace box office or through Computicket. Dinner packages are also available from R250 per person. Unfortunately no children under 15 are allowed.
