Adriano hosts a successful one-man show

Another great show in the bag for Adriano Visagie.

As expected, Adriano Visagie exceptionally executes his one-man show well. The actor had Namibian film experts in awe including Sandy Rudd and Florian Schott who both had nothing but prodigious thoughts on the show. The one-man show based on Franz Kafak’s A Report for an Academy that was directed by David Ndjavera was held over two days at the Cota Theatre School with each night being a full house.

“I had two full houses and positive reviews with everybody just being happy,” said Adriano.


Florian Schott who directed Katutura the move said he totally has forgotten what was happening around him and was so vested that the ape had come to life.

The play was performed in such a way that Adriano had to act like an ape without being in an ape costume. A Report for an Academy is a short story by Franz Kafka, written and published in 1917. In the story, an Ape named Red Peter, who has learned to behave like a human, presents to an academy the story of how he affected his transformation.

“I am an ape, I was walking and speaking like one but I was still Adriano. I am personally overwhelmed by the positive criticisms that I have received so far. Martina Piper who has studied Kafak’s work said she has never experienced his work come to life,” he said.

The director David Ndavera had also done the play and he was also blown away by how Adriano brought the play to life in his own way. Adriano thanked everyone who came out to watch him.
