If the Belgian Valentijn Dhaenens is new to you, take a drink in and brace yourself for an unnerving, technically risky and thought-provoking show ... I would hate to have missed it.”

    He who picks his words well can turn the weakest argument into the strongest.

    Having enjoyed critically acclaimed sell-out seasons in New York and at the Adelaide Festival, Valentjin Dhaenen’s thrilling companion piece to SmallWar returns to
    Edinburgh for three performances only.

    Using fragments of well-known and lesser-known speeches in a virtuoso performance, BigMouth shows that, in 2,500 years, the tricks of the trade have hardly changed, and that whilst the absolute truth doesn’t exist, it’s just a pretty lie for those who aspire to world power, or simply just the hand of their beloved.
