Like a sports reporter after a football match, Kevin Doyle dissects the rhetorics of Donald Trump to reveal deeper undercurrents in American public discourse. PMURT combines solo performance with appropriated video to explore parallels between media consolidation and the compression of language. Drawing upon precedents in American politics, Doyle traces the dumbing down of public information and a dwindling tolerance for complex issues. PMURT is based upon Doyle’s August 2016 essay, which accurately predicted how Donald Trump would win the Presidential Election. The essay, ignored and dismissed by the New York theatre establishment, was published in October 2016 by Diggit Magazine in The Netherlands. PMURT was commissioned by the Vooruit Arts Center (Gent) and premiered in May 2017 to coincide with President Trump’s first visit to Belgium.
