Pieter-Dirk Uys is South Africa's best known political satirist and has
been active in making fun of fear since the days of apartheid in the
1970s. With a Berlin-born Jewish mother and an Afrikaner father, he
proudly feels that he belongs to both chosen people!
FOREIGN AIDS is a journey through the minefields of South Africa today -
not a fear of bombs and terrorists, but of a virus that has no cure. To
care is to Cure, but with a government not willing to confront the issue
of the AIDS-pandemic, Pieter-Dirk Uys uses his weapon of mass
destraction, humour, to illustrate the courage and the hope that the
South African people have, the children demand, and the future expects.
In the show - which will be performed in English - Uys will introduce to
his Berlin audience Mrs Evita Bezuidenhout, his most famous creation, as
well as her sister Bambi Kellermann, Jewish-African-Princess Nowell
Fine, Desmond Tutu, PW Botha and Nelson Mandela.
This one-man show has performed to rave reviews at the Sydney Opera
House, in London's Tricycle Theatre, throughout the Netherlands, the USA
and South Africa.
