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 Mohammed Ali and Osama Bin Laden, Bigmouth shows that the tricks of rhetoric have hardly changed.

Through an exhilarating soundscape, Dhaenens traverses sermons, declarations of war, farewells, final arguments, victory speeches and eulogies from across time.

Bigmouth has captivated audiences across Belgium and the Netherlands, making its UK debut in 2012 for just 10 performances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe where it received universal critical and audience acclaim.
