SmallWar & BigMouth: Two Plays
by Dhaenens, Valentijn

SmallWar: A nurse maintains watchful vigil over patients as fragments of past wars lurk within the shadows. SmallWar tells the story in the words of those who were there and led the way, and - crucially - those who followed. BigMouth: He who picks his words well can turn the weakest argument into the strongest. In a tour de force performance, Valentijn Dhaenens pays tribute to 2,500 years of oration. Ingeniously weaving together fragments of seminal speeches from not only the Grand Inquisitor and Socrates to Mohammed Ali and Osama Bin Laden, BigMouth shows that the tricks of rhetoric have hardly changed.
