Valentijn Dhaenens: BigMouth

Rousing, notorious and downright terrifying

"Brace yourself…"

- The Times
The one-man powerhouse Valentijn Dhaenens pays tribute to the art of speech making, delivering rhetoric that spans 2,500 years. Modulating his voice and expressions with chameleon-like versatility and indefatigable energy, Dhaenens morphs into a succession of leaders, recalling among others Pericles, Goebbels, Kennedy, King, Bin Laden and Bush. Switching between multiple microphones, he ingeniously weaves together extracts from war declarations, sermons and farewells. Children under 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Runtime: 1 hour 20 minutes with no interval. Please note that the show will be performed in English and Latin, Dutch, French, German with English subtitles.
