The Drum


The makers of BigMouth are back with a thrilling and pertinent new show that delves deeply into the politician’s life and laying bare those juicy backstage scenes we are all on the lookout for.

Valentijn Dhaenens’ performance unravels the DNA of the homo politicus – with all attendant nastiness – and creates a personage that both mesmerises and repulses. While the whole world’s asleep, we follow the political animal as he pulls into yet another hotel, peels off yet another white shirt, peps himself up for yet another speech. Today, we give you the all-time politician: the power junkie, the rogue, the strategist, but also the husband, the father, and in the end, the very lonely human.
