THEATRE COLLEGE ABOUT UNLIKELY EXCITING US ELECTIONS IN 2024

American expert Raymond Mens will give a lecture on the American presidential elections in AGORA. Why is Donald Trump actually coming back? Why doesn't Joe Biden just retire? And how does the American electoral system actually work?

In his theater lecture 'Long Live America', Raymond Mens shares his passion for America, discusses current events and answers questions from the audience. The American expert is the same man that viewers see on television: enthusiastic, cheerful and witty. But above all: full of passion about the country he loves so much.

Trump era

Naturally, the Netherlands' most famous American expert also takes the audience on a journey through the Trump era, as detailed in his book 'Long Live Trump'. The upcoming American elections will be unprecedentedly exciting, not only for America itself but also for us here in Europe. The mechanisms that America's 45th president responds to are much bigger and more important than himself. What is his formula for success? What are the main ingredients? The answers to these questions say a lot about his political rise, but even more about what we can expect in the coming years if Donald wins the upcoming elections.

Media war

Mens also discusses in detail the influence of America's news media, as described in his latest book 'Nieuws Als Wapen'. He discusses a media war that is no longer about ratings, but about political power. Through recognizable fragments, he gives the audience a bizarre look behind the scenes and explains the rise of FOX News.

Raymond Mens

Raymond Mens (1986) is an American expert and political scientist. He is known for popular, well-known TV programs such as Today Inside (SBS6) and Op1 (NPO1), where he provides insightful information about the latest developments in the United States. Man sees himself as a commentator who analyzes a football match: eye on the ball, love for the game played, and objective.

Raymond Mens' theater lecture is a fun, interactive, audiovisual performance with many (TV) images of speeches, debates, meetings and bizarre events from American politics.
