Five contenders. Five rounds. Your vote. Only one will survive. The stakes: your attention, your love, your approval, your laughter, your compassion, your weak spot, your guilty pleasure, your heart, your support, your choice. We help you to decide through random checks, voting signposts, coalitions, campaigns, debates, consultants, exit polls, spin doctors, opinion gauges, list pushers, referendums. We’ll do anything to make the best not win.

Fight Night, created in 2013, has been touring the world, playing from Australia and Belgium to Canada, from Hong Kong to Switzerland. Remakes were made in Russia, Kazakhstan and Turkey, whilst a French version was touring Europe.

Fight Night remains one of the most popular shows in Ontroerend Goed’s repertoire, ready for a new world tour in 2024, thé election year.

Press

  • “A cross between Big Brother and an Italian general election.”
    The Independent – Paul Vallely ****
  • “Without even a single political reference, Ontroerend Goed’s ‘Fight Night’ makes a precarious analysis of the consensus politics our democratic system has fallen into. That’s impressive.”
    De Morgen - Evelyne Coussens ****
  • “Who the hell needs consensus politics if there’s a revolution to be had?” Total Theatre – Dorothy Max Prior
