Nataniël dubs RAINBOW AT MIDNIGHT “most advanced project of my career” at Emperors Palace
After the runaway success of last year’s Factory production, Nataniël will return to the newly improved Theatre of Marcellus from 21 August to 28 September with a brand new creation, RAINBOW AT MIDNIGHT.
In 1965 one of the descendants of what was secretly called The Victims of the Rainbow discovers a diary that tells the tale of what happened one night in 1880 when a group of visitors to the rainbow travelling fair had a supernatural experience that would change their lives and the lives of their children forever.
The story is told - in true Nataniël-style - with original music, stories (in both English and Afrikaans) and breathtaking designs by Floris Louw that jump from the present to the past.
Since Nataniël has combined strength with singers Corlea, Lindiwe Bungane, Nicolaas Swart, acrobat Brad Dreyer and resident band consisting of Charl du Plessis (keyboards), Juan Oosthuizen (guitars), Werner Spies (bass), Hugo Radyn (drums) and Tonia Selley (percussion and vocals), the company has turned - in true Victorian style - into a performing troupe, creating two more stage productions plus a brand new cd, Moodswing. Nataniël describes this past year as one of the best creative periods in his life with one of the strongest companies of his career.
“These performers complete my vision; I would not change a thing! RAINBOW AT MIDNIGHT is technically the most advanced project of my career and I am attempting it with the best artists I know”, comments Nataniël.
