Theatre-performance-group Ontroerend Goed produces self-devised work grounded in the here and now, inviting their audiences to participate as well as observe for an intense experience. The company has won numerous prizes across Europe and their work is currently being performed in countries around the world.

“Ontroerend Goed invites you to get under the skin of the well-to-do the 1%, the super-rich, the ones who pull the strings, the faces we never get to see. For one night, you can take their chairs. You call the shots. You’re in the centre of our economic system. You shape the course. And who knows, you might make the world a better place, more fair, more responsible because you’ll do things differently, for sure.” (Ontroerend Goed, director)

In this interactive performance, 8 actors invite you into the history of the financial world of the past 100 years and provide an insight into the intricacies of the monetary system and its impacts.

» ... a show that simultaneously reinvents what theatre can be and triggers our emotions in exactly the way the best theatre can do. The Scotsman, Mark Fisher

» What Ontroerend Goed has done with £¥€$ is far more powerful than simply presenting a play about greed and corruption. We can feel the damage done and we have no-one else to blame. It’s a lesson for us all. What’s On Stage, Su Carroll
