Australian Premiere / Exclusive to Adelaide

"**** Electrifying and transcendent"

- Exuent

With five microphones and unrelenting energy, Valentijn Dhaenens celebrates 2500 years of oration in a tour de force one-man performance. From Socrates to Bin Laden, victory speeches to eulogies and the rousing to the frankly inept, the most memorable addresses in history are woven together to create a thrilling and powerful oratory rollercoaster that has enjoyed sell-out seasons in Europe and the UK.

“A fascinating experience” The Guardian
