Nataniel's "After Animals" is like nothing you've seen before!

Nataniel's latest work in the theatre is After Animals. The show features an all-male cast and was inspired by Nataniel’s love for classic and contemporary art as well as his passion for travel. The idea for the show was born after he met an artist in Europe, who had created a paper model of an empty zoo.

Speaking to 702 and Cape Talk's Sam Cowen on Weekend Breakfast, Nataniel mentioned that he often travels on safari across the continent but the show is not about animals but human behaviour after animals die out.

It's not a tragic 'save the animals show' - that is my message and 'stop eating your friends'. I'm not trying to turn the world into vegans, I'm just trying to entertain them and to put a world out there that's already happening in the sense of how we just have no respect for nature as a worl, as a planet.

Nataniel, Performer

People are not humble anymore and people do not learn ... We learn everything these days through an app, or from looking through your window. I used to be like that, I used to think you plant trees because you don't want to see your neighbour.

Nataniel, Performer

Nataniel ensured Sam that the show would be highly entertaining, which is true to what South Africans have come to expect of the talented performer's work. Listen to his conversation with Sam below:
