Pieter-Dirk Uys

His acclaimed memoir is a culmination of all the small signposts he followed throughout his life that have pointed him in a particular direction.

With over 7000 performances to his name at the age of 71, Pieter-Dirk Uys has cemented himself into the history of performing arts in South Africa.

In The Echo of a Noise Uys takes off all the masks, eyelashes and personas and opens up about his public and private life.

In the show he will be sharing personal mythologies and histories that have led him to the stage but also highlight the influences that his father, mother and grandmothers had on shaping him as an artist.

"I think now that I've passed that roadsign that says You can speed over 70 now, I can leave the security blankets of characters and the disguise of monsters, madams and moffies and just tell the stories behind the story," says Uys.

The Echo of a Noise runs from the 22 March to 9 April 2017 at the Studio Theatre Montecasino.
