Nataniël returns to The Theatre of Marcellus, Emperors Palace with his new stage production, MANNEQUIN, from 18 August 2016.

An author toys with the idea of writing a book about the life of a reclusive tailor. MANNEQUIN is the story told by this tailor. A tale of surprise, fear, cruelty, humour, truth and fantasy. The show not only features original music, but also Nataniël’s surprise versions of a few of the world’s best known songs from the late sixties and the eighties.

MANNEQUIN - first tltled THE ANGRY TAILOR, then GARMENT, then THE DISAPPEARANCE, then THE CAPTIVES, then THE ARTISANS, the THE NIGHT PEOPLE and then THE INVISIBLE WORLD - has been structured around stories in both English and in Afrikaans.

Nataniël shares the stage with long-time fellow musicians Charl du Plessis (keyboards), Juan Oosthuizen (guitars), Werner Spies (bass), Hugo Radyn (drums) and favourite singers Nicolaas Swart and Dihan Slabbert.

This is a show about visual beauty and tailoring and features an astounding collection of new costumes by the multi award-winning designer, Floris Louw.

Books, cds, dvd’s and products from Nataniël’s Kaalkop range available at all performances.

NATANIËL se Nuwe Kookboek!

Met DIE HUIS VAN RYE nooi Nataniël, verhoogkunstenaar en koskenner, ons uit om by hom te kom eet. Hy deel sy resepte vir ’n string uiteenlopende en buitengewone geregte soos chorisobrood, biltong-en-aarbeislaai en Frans-Italiaans-Meksikaans-Pretoria-panbredie. Met meer as 150 disse, wat alles van handhappies en ontbyt tot heerlike gebak en nageregte insluit, is daar iets vir almal. Die resepte is maklik en kort, dog interessant en indrukwekkend genoeg om aan gaste voor te sit.

Die besonderse ontwerp is in Nataniël se unieke styl, en weerspieël sy passie vir simmetrie, skoonheid – en, ja, rye... Gewis Nataniël se beste kookboek nóg en ’n pragboek vol verrassings.

This website is my only activity on the internet. I do not blog, facebook or twitter, I do not have the time or the interest.

It is therefore with great sadness and shock that I became aware of the thousands and thousands of emails being circulated, all containing "stories" attributed to me. These stories are vile, tacky and BADLY WRITTEN. I am proud of my own writings and have published each and every piece in one of my books.

I hereby, categorically, once and for all, state the following:

• I have not written a story called SPINNEKOP.

• I have not written a piece called LEWENSLESSE.

• I have not written a story about GOING TO THE GYM.

• I have not written pieces about ETIQUETTE or WHAT TO WEAR or SARCASM.

• I have not written a piece called Matriekafskeid

To anybody who has ever forwarded one of these to his or her address book, the following: Get a life. Save the planet, save the children, save the animals, save the forests, save your breath, save your soul, lose weight, buy a good book, go to church or try a new recipe. Life is too short to be wasted.
