Speak! - Sanja Mitrović

SPEAK! is a performance about the power and virtuosity of public speaking, ranging from the spoken word, through choreographed sequences, to songs.

Political speeches are aimed not only at a live audience, but, through the media, also at the broad population. The ‘what’ of the political message often seems to be strongly influenced, if not completely clouded, by ‘how’ the message is conveyed. If the evergrowing role of spin doctors determines the way in which a political leader works, to what extent do we, the electorate and the public, allow ourselves to be manipulated?

With a wealth of historical material, two performers try to capture the emotion behind the words and look for the perfect speech and the most effective way to perform it. With subtle humour, playfulness and sometimes painful moments, SPEAK! is a performance about the power and virtuosity of public speaking, ranging from the spoken word, through choreographed sequences, to songs. Just as in current entertainment programmes you can vote for the speech that affects and touches you the most.

Curious?

Mitrović’s concept is absolutely brilliant in the way it combines political speech-making with the type of reality TV show in which the audience votes for the participant of their choice.
