Pieter-Dirk Uys's first one-man show opened on April Fool’s Day 1981 - ADAPT OR DYE. Rainbow Democracy will be in its eighteenth year. African National Congress will be gearing up for its crucial congress in Mangaung during the second half of the year. Everything in our country has changed and yet some things seem to be the same old story. Poverty, violence, crime, corruption, media control, confusion and fear were the realities of life during the 1980s. Has history repeated itself in some areas and turned tragedy into farce? ADAPT OR FLY was also inspired by politics. At the height of the Malema-speak of nationalization of mines and land-grabs of farms which frightened many people into near-panic, a spokesperson for ANC Youth League was heard to suggest that if whites did not like the fact that the youth would take over South Africa, then they could go somewhere else: ‘Adapt or fly!’ Joburg Theatre, The Mandela, Braamfontein, Johannesburg.
