THEATRE — Ontroerend Goed wants, in a partnership with the Australian company The Border Project, to talk about the desire for popularity, the systems of voting and the occasional failure of democracy.
In Fight Night, you, the audience, have the control. The performance consists of 5 actors, 5 scenes and you can decide who after each scene must leave the stage. Which player agrees to the final monologue?
Five players. Five rounds.
We will help you decide with surveys, political quizzes, coalitions, campaigns, debates, consultants,
exit polls, spin doctors, political candidates and referendums.
We will make sure the best man doesn’t win.
Fight Night premiered on April 10, 2013 at the Vooruit in Ghent.
