Two of the most famous artists will join forces for the first time in the production “Grensloos” on 28 April at 14h30. André Schwartz and Coenie de Villiers have always desired to do a combined show and decided that that the time is now, while they are still able to do so.
“There will actually be three of us on stage: the huge grand piano is the third presence as both artists will play. Everyone knows André as an internationally acclaimed singer, but not everyone knows that he is also king of the keys.” says Coenie.
Why the title “Grensloos” (without boundaries)? We wanted to create something without any boundaries. There will be amazing and lesser known compositions from France, the Netherlands and of course from South Africa. We will perform some of my own compositions and some of Coenie’s. We both wanted to create a show with no compromises as one does not know when it will be possible again.” says André.
During the show Schwartz and De Villiers with talk about their first recordings as far back as the Seventies. “It’s a bit like looking at old matric-farewell photos, and hopefully we have matured and can now produce a show as we always wanted to do. It is amazing to work together – we should have done so ages ago! “
On a more serious note they say: “It will be a positive show – no one will be crying about their fate in life. It is unbelievable to see the spectrum of songs that reflects the message of live and let live, crossing all boundaries – not only between countries, but between people, genders and cultures. At the end of the day we are all just humans…..”
Come and celebrate life with word and song, performed by two of our greatest musicians at the Atterbury Theatre.
