Bigmouth/Smallwar - Valentijn Dhaenens


Bigmouth Affiche
In BigMouth (DeGroteMond) Valentijn Dhaenens pays tribute to 2500 years of speechmaking.

Using excerpts from welland lesser-known speeches, he shows us the tricks of the art of rhetoric. Those who choose their words well can makethe weakest argument the strongest …

BigMouth has now been performed more than 300 times in 25 countries and has won several awards.

In 2018, after exactly 10 years, Dhaenens is bringing this story to an end with a final tour. And he does so in a special way. On one and the same evening DeGroteMond will be presented together with DeKleineOorlog,

a monologue he created a few years later which also went on an unprecedented international tour as SmallWar.

In DeGroteMond, the masses were manipulated with the help of historical speeches made by world leaders, who thereby steered them towards war. DeKleineOorlog shows us the other side of the coin. After all, what are the consequences of those uplifting words for the ordinary man in the street? What about the people who have to move on from words to deeds?
