The Echo of a Noise

Having performed alone on the stages of the world well over seven thousand times, Pieter-Dirk Uys has learnt that every show is the first and the last performance – because each audience demands and gets a different energy, topicality and excitement.

Now in his 71stth year, Pieter-Dirk doesn’t glance back at the successes and failures that have strengthened his belief in a constant improvement of his work, but at those small signposts that throughout his life subconsciously pointed him in a right and original direction. His father Hannes Uys and his mother Helga Bassel.  His grandmothers, his teachers, his passions.  Sophia Loren, censorship, false eyelashes and making a noise when everyone demanded silence.
