Description

Following a soldout debut at Suidoosterfees last year, “n Koffer in Berlyn” (“a Suitcase in Berlin”) starring Cape Town-based contralto Jacobi de Villiers will appear at this year’s Woordfees for two shows. Written in Afrikaans by Jani Greeff, with accompaniment by Danie Theron on piano, this show tells the story of a young South African woman who finds a stranger’s suitcase in her Berlin hotel room, the contents of which help her explore her own memories, stories and hopes for the future. The story is interweaved with lieder from Richard Strauss, Marlene Dietrich and others.
