Fight Night

Ontroerend Goed, The Border Project, Theatre Royal Plymouth, Richard Jordan Productions and Vooruit in association with Adelaide Festival of the Arts.

Five performers. Five rounds. Your vote. One survivor.

  • Directed by Alexander Devriendt
  • Written by Alexander Devriendt and the cast

★★★★ Independent, Metro, Time Out

This 2013 Fringe-hit from Belgium’s extraordinary Ontroerend Goed and Australia’s The Border Project is a theatrical game that puts the power into your hands. You'll be armed with voting keypads while five candidates battle to get your attention, sympathy and approval - but only one contestant can survive this popularity contest.  

This timely exploration of democratic processes and the cult of celebrity is exciting, vital theatre and every performance is bound to be different, because the vote is yours. But do you really have free choice?  

Contains strong language and mild adult themes.
Please note, due to the nature of the performance, latecomers will not be admitted.
