Typically, being called a big mouth is an insult, but at the Wharton Center this Thursday, it is one man’s exploration of history. We speak with Belgian performance artist Valentijn Dhaenens about his one man-one mouth show, which pulls from famous speeches across history to tell the story of the world we live in.

Tonight at the Wharton Center, 300 costumes, 20 acts, and 30 performers from 12 countries will arrive on stage for the touring production of "Cirque Dreams Holidaze." But it will also be a homecoming performance for one member of the troupe. We speak with the Holt High School graduate working behind the scenes for this upcoming theatrical production of "Cirque Dreams."
