Until February 21st, The Cultch presents BigMouth a one-of-a-kind spoken word show at The York Theatre.
A hit at the famed Edinburgh Fringe Festival, BigMouth is directed and performed by Belgian writer/actor Valentijn Dhaenens the show appears to be a one man show but it has over two dozen voices. BigMouth is a curated collection of 2500 years of memorable speeches. From the Grand Inquisitor to Ann Coulter, with Socrates, JFK, Ronald Reagan, Osama Bin Laden and more in between. When taken out of context and assembled together, it’s remarkable how similar some of the content of the oration becomes even though they were perhaps told years or great distances apart.
Between the clusters of speeches, songs and sounds, produced only by Valentijn’s own mouth, break the themes and periods with more unique pieces of verbal performances art.
BigMouth runs at The Cultch – The York Theatre, 639 Commercial Drive until February 21, 2016. The performance runs 85 minutes, no intermission.
