MORE ON THE PERFORMANCE

---------------------------------------------------


The idea / story / message of the show is deliberately ambiguous. Albeit based on the lyrics of the song “I Started A Joke” by the Bee Gees, it does not have a storyline. It holds a mirror up to the audience. There is regret, mistakes and wrongdoing as a basic theme that can refer or be applied to the listener’s personal journey or a group, or a political reflection, a psychological dysfunction etc. It does not preach, heal or advise – the audience is left at the end to interpret it and make up their own minds. It shows the stupid, the funny, the irrational, the unaware aspects of the human condition and its actions.


The idea was inspired by the COVID pandemic and all the political, economical, medical, psychological effects and uncertainty it had on humanity. The production was conceived and written in December 2021.


The music is by (performed and/or composed):

The Bee Gees; The Doors; Roger Whittaker; Valiant Swart; Nataniël; Queen; The Moody Blues; The Rolling Stones; Simon & Garfunkel; The Beatles; Pink Floyd; Rod Stewart; Leonard Cohen; The Seekers; Koos du Plessis; Richard van der Westhuizen, traditional folk songs and songs from the musicals Hair and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
