Summerhall Festival - Main Hall
The makers of BigMouth return with a thrilling, relevant new show. Delving deeply into the politician’s life and exposing those juicy backstage scenes we all look for, Valentijn Dhaenens’ performance unravels the DNA of the politician (including attendant nastiness) creating a personage that mesmerises and repulses. While the world’s asleep, follow this political animal as he pulls into yet another hotel, peels off yet another white shirt, peps himself up for yet another speech. Today, we give you the all-time politician: the power junkie, rogue, strategist, but also the husband, father, and in the end, the very lonely human.
