Raka – Die roman, (Human en Rousseau, 2005)
Contribution to South African Theatre, Film, Media and Performance
His writings formed the basis for the seminal Afrikaans rock-cabaret of 1988* entitled Piekniek by Dingaan (directed by Gerrit Schoonhoven), the banning of which caused a furore at CAPAB, and which went on to become a sensation at the Grahamstown Festival of that year and enjoy a successful and influential private run at the Baxter Theatre. In many ways the production, following on the more intellectual cabarets of Hennie Aucamp, signalled the arrival of a really aggressive Afrikaans anti-apartheid protest theatre.
In 199* he wrote another cabaret for the University of Stellenbosch Drama Department entitled ****, which was performed in ***. His lyrics and songs are also used widely in satirical and other cabaret and revue work.
