Fight Night

Ontroerend Goed / from Belgium

Offers a clever mix of propositions that probe how you feel about other people, but also how you view yourself.

Chicago Tribune, Chris Jones

Five contenders.
Five rounds.
Your Vote.

The show begins with five candidates on stage. At the end of the show, only one will be victorious. 

Through a series of guided prompts and questions, Ontroerend Goed’s Fight Night takes you— the audience—on a journey to choose the best candidate. As each round progresses, the audience learns more information about each candidate that will inform their vote. Random checks, voting signposts, coalitions, campaigns, debates, consultants, exit polls, spin doctors, opinion gauges, list pushers, and referendums will inform your vote. The host will do anything to derail the candidates’ best intentions.. Will the audience choose someone who represents their views? Or will they choose the opposite?

With a mix of humor and sharp political commentary, Fight Night is full of twists and turns that will have audiences rethinking how – and why – they vote. In the brand-new Fight Night, the world will remain outside: there are no actual political statements made inside this one-of-a-kind show, only a sharp analysis of how democracy works.
