Show Description

It started in 1995 as the first show at Evita se Perron in Darling.

Every Sunday TANNIE EVITA peeled the onion of South African history, exposing the lies and the fantasies and delving deeper into where we were and where we are going. “Tannie Evita Praat Kaktus” became the longest running show in South Africa.

At last it has left the Swartland to confront one of the most controversial issues in our democracy: the real history of South Africa and the right to laugh at the lies.

Today everyone is free to celebrate a story of survival – all except the Afrikaner. While their history was the foundation to everyone’s story from 1652 to 1994, it takes the most famous white woman in South Africa to bring out the truth and expose the spin. Harry Potter and Indiana Jones would be envious.

Assisted by visual aids reflecting a familiar terrain of history, from the arrival of a small Dutch ship called the Drommedaris to the coronation of a former political prisoner called Madiba, EVITA will take her audience on a unique great trek as she follows the journey of the Kaktus of Separate Development (Kaktaceae Apartica) from its arrival in 1652 to its reinvention in 1994 – right up to the headlines of today.

Not for the fainthearted who still believe that civilization arrived with Jan van Riebeeck!
