Fifty Shades of Bambi

I love Pieter-Dirk Uys. I enjoy Evita Bezuidenhout. I like Ouma Ossewania. I LOVE Bambi Kellerman, Evita Bezuidenhout’s younger sister.

Bambi is scandalous woman – a stripper, a sex worker and “grande horizontal” who, according to her publicist graduated from the “University of Sex Cum Laude”. Bambi Kellerman also received a Fleur de Cap Award in 2010 for Best Cabaret. It has been several years since I last saw Bambi when she performed on the stage at what is now The Fringe, Joburg Theatre.

She is appearing in Fifty Shades of Bambi, billes as “her new fabulous onslaught against the prudish, the improper and the pathetic”.

Fifty Shades of Bambi is not monochromatic

The infamous Fifty Shades series focused only on one experiential colour, but Bambi’s new caberet show runs the full rainbow spectrum of life, love, laughter and lies. It is a show for adults as Bambi shares her teenage confusions, youthful experimentation, middle-aged compromise and, now, bringing absolute common sense to her life experience, her twilight-years. It is not only about sex. It is about enjoying what comes naturally. And if it’s not natural … the press release warns us to be careful.

“Pieter-Dirk Uys presents: “50 SHADES OF BAMBI” with musical direction by Godfrey Johnson at the piano, while Bambi takes a raunchy ride to the other side of daily life: putting a square peg into a round hole through relationships, trust, happiness, hope, love and fidelity. Sex is the full-frontal focus, with words, music, toys and tinsel. Recommended to anyone who believes in freedom of expression and the right to choose what is best for them when the lights are low – all presented with the wisdom of experience, humour of recall and songs that remind and remain.”

50 Shades of Bambi will be on at The Auto & General Theatre on the Square from 25 February to 16 March 2014: Tues – Fri 20h15; Sat 17h00 and 20h30; Sundays at 15h00
