Karoo Suite by Deon Meyer and Coenie de Villiers had its debut run at the KKNK Arts Festival three years ago. Since then, the production has had South African audiences on their feet. The follow-up production, Karoo Suite 2: Karoonagte, follows the proven recipe with text by Meyer (who is also the on-stage narrator) and original music by De Villiers. Guitar maestro Mauritz Lotz joins them on stage. The production consists of night stories and tales, and the production is supplemented with audio-visual material by National Geographic-photographers and footage by Nasa, as well as animation by artist Diek Grobler. Karoo Suite 2: Karoonagte is a beautiful and compelling homage to the Karoo by Deon Meyer and Coenie de Villiers.
