The Asia-Europe co-production sees Ontroerend Goed (Belgium) and The Border Project (Australia) team up to present Fight Night, (26 Feb – 1 Mar), a reflection on democracy, elections, and political manipulation.
In a game show format, five ‘candidates’ battle to get your sympathy and your vote. Only one will survive the series of elimination contests. Along the way – campaigns, coalitions, exit polls, spin doctors, the whole panoply of a modern election. Exciting and totally engaging, this is reality theatre, live and unique to the moment. Every performance is bound to be different, because the vote is yours. But do you really have free choice?
