A man soaks in a bath, smoke drifting into the blue. Around him scattered remains of a life: boxes, a gramophone, mother's pearls, father's jacket - his constant companions as he retraces his journey to adulthood. Wessel Pretorius is one of the most exciting talents to emerge from South Africa in years. His almost other-worldly physical control is matched only by his mellifluous voice, the timbre of which lends shadows and echoes to once familiar words. - See more at:
