BigMouth


SKaGeN (Belgium)

with Richard Jordan Productions in association with DeTijd & STUK

In a tour de force performance, Valentijn Dhaenens pays tribute to 2,500 years of oration. Ingeniously weaving together fragments of seminal speeches from the Grand Inquisitor and Socrates, to Muhammad Ali and Osama Bin Laden, BigMouth shows that the language of power and the tricks of the rhetorical trade have hardly changed.

In Dutch, French, German, and English with English supertitles


Directed and performed by Valentijn Dhaenens

Sound and lighting design by Jeroen Wuyts
