Chicago Shakespeare Theater

Smash hit of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival! Equipped with just nine microphones, his voice, and an indefatigable energy, Valentijn Dhaenens’ tour-de-force performance celebrates the power of words and language to change the course of history. Spanning 2,500 years of oration, he weaves together seminal speeches—ranging from the ancient Greeks to George W. Bush, and spanning political extremes from Osama bin Laden to JFK and Martin Luther King. Audiences are immediately transported across the millennia by Dhaenens’ virtuosity, as he illuminates the tricks of rhetoric that have remained unchanged since the dawn of language.
