Rocco de Villiers in piano concert 1


Rocco is famous for his flamboyant style of piano playing. This is entertainment at it’s best. A modern pianist – in touch, in fashion, well dressed and well rehearsed.

De Villiers became a legend in his parents’ lounge when he was growing up, mixing drinks for their guests and then playing the piano. Later he became established as not only a performer, but also a producer, composer, conductor and director.

    In English, French, Italian and Zulu, Vitamin R tells the life story of Saint Rocco (c. 1295 – 1378), Patron Saint of plague victims alongside the reality of the pandemic currently in South Africa.

    Vitamin R looks at stigma, judgment, self-hatred, love and survival in times of plague – driven by a state of mind, not in pill form and not controlled by a medical aid.
