The interactive theater hit of last season returns for three extra shows. Ontroerend Goed invites you to become a wealthy banker. The 1%, the super rich. Those who are in control. The faces that we never get to see. For one evening you can take their place and determine the course.
You call the shots
In the title of the performance you can read 'lies' or Pound, Yen, Euro and Dollar. Whichever you read, lies or currency, it's all about money. Ontroerend Goed invites you to become one of the superwealthy. You call the shots. You are at the center of our economic system. You determine every course. And who knows, maybe you can make the world a better place, more honest, more responsible. You will certainly not make the same mistakes as those greedy bankers, will you?
P.S. If you come, please bring money. Cash, because we do not trust the pixels on your screen, telling us how much money you supposedly have to your name.
Over Ontroerend Goed
Theatre performance group Ontroerend Goed creates new work, anchored in the here-and-now, inviting the audience to watch, but also to be part of the performance. The group had its breakthrough in 2001 with the Porrortrilogie, a hybrid mix of poetry performance, cabaret and metatheater, and turned the theatre conventions on its head with The Smile Off Your Face, in which the audience was tied up in a wheelchair and blindfolded. With Puberty does not Exist, an uncompromising explosion of raw teenage violence, the Ghent collective established its reputation as an innovator on the international scene. Awarded numerous awards at festivals in Europe and Australia, their work has been performed all over the world since 2007.
In de pers
★★★★ What's On Stage
"As interactive theatrical experiences go, Ontroerend Goed's £¥€$ has got to be one of the best. The audience are sucked into a world of global markets, banks and the deals to be had, then hit square between the eyes with message about economics."
