After an unlikely international journey, KVS face Valentijn Dhaenens brings the SKaGeN monologues BigMouth and SmallWar together on one evening, as a final tour. To be booked together or separately.
In BigMouth, Valentijn Dhaenens performs an ode to 2500 years of oration. Using fragments from famous and lesser-known speeches, he demonstrates that rhetorical devices have hardly changed through time. The sermon, the declaration of war, the farewell, the final plea, the victory speech, the eulogy… Whoever chooses their words right can turn the weakest argument into the strongest. Absolute truths don’t exist. They are a beautiful lie for those who crave world dominance, or the hand of a loved one.
BigMouth was performed over 300 times in 25 countries. The production received countless five-star reviews and won a number of international prizes.
