PMURT, a performance-lecture

written & performed by Kevin Doyle

Video & Media design by Kevin Doyle

Directed by April Sweeney

Vooruit Theater, Ghent, Belgium

May 20, 2017

PMURT dissects the rhetorics of Donald Trump to reveal deeper undercurrents in American public discourse by combining solo performance with appropriated video to explore parallels between media consolidation and the compression of language. Drawing upon precedents in American politics PMURT traces the dumbing down of public information and a dwindling tolerance for complex issues.  


Commissioned by the Vooruit Arts Center PMURT premiered in May 2017 to coincide with President Trump’s first visit to Belgium.
