When I think of Soli Philander my mind immediately goes to the switching on of the Kaapse Liggies where he was the MC on various occasions or that TaxiVision show on Cape Town TV. He is however a man of many talents and last night I got to witness another one of those talents in the form of his new one-man show called NICE COAT….ya dit was ‘n LEKKER JAS show.
The show moves like a Taxi driver through peak hour traffic down lower mainroad in Salt River, climbing the curb then swerving back into traffic all in the space of 70 minute. It is like a survival guide to Cape Town with tips on must see places and all the different cultures that comes with living in The Mother City.
Soli does not mince his words as he rhymes with a reason, spitting words that I sometimes felt like I needed to consult a dictionary but hey Google Translate might also come in handy.
A well-constructed narrative much more than a RACE around our city but rather a Cape Town Marathon taking you from the heights of the picturesque Table Mountain to the point where the two oceans meet, not fogetting everything in-between that makes us love this City we call Home. Oh yes, bring your passport too because you’ll go overseas ….to Robben Island that is (had to mention because it was Madiba Day yesterday after all).
I thoroughly enjoyed the show, ek het gelag dat die traane loep but their were also some serious moments, thought provoking commentary added in the mix showcasing our diversity and why we love being Capetonians.
Once again Soli sticks his hands in his Nice Coat with pockets full of inspiration and brings us an awesome show….all I can say is stiek uit Mase Kin you will not be disappointed.
