Four performers come and go in a confusion of roles, costumes, scene changes, and light effects. Butlers, servants, messengers, soldiers, doctors, lovers, murderers, dancers, drunks, scoundrels, liars, and innocents are all here, along with queens and kings in tattered robes, all of them wailing in the fake snow that falls somewhere between the bookcase, the coffee table, the dead tree and the ironing board. A storm outside. A war in the distance. The sound of applause.

…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 ****

…‘Fight Night’ develops into a vital exploration (…) into why we cling to our democratic institutions despite their failures, and what the alternatives might look like; and how, in the end, we deal with dissent, in a big society or a small room where the majority have decided, but a large minority beg to disagree

«Zoo» est un jeu aux allures de show télévisé qui soumet 3 candidats à des épreuves déshumanisantes : salve d’ordres, séance de tir, récitation. Mais les candidats décident de ne pas en rester là. Après les avoir vu avec empathie obéir, obtempérer et souffrir, on prend plaisir avec eux à les voir retourner le jeu contre lui-même, et, avec une insolence insurrectionnelle et créative, s’amuser comme des enfants avec la dignité, la peur de la mort et le langage.

Ad Hominem is an interactive philosophical choose-your-own-adventure film, based on Sofie Verhaest’s brilliant doctoral thesis Eutopia Unbound, in which the player is cast in the role of Change. The player is invited to pick an answer to questions proposed by four different characters representing four distinct utopic ideas. Through a maze of historical quotes on collectivism, individualism, progressive thinking and conservatism, the player is guided towards an event, organized in honor of Change’s arrival.

Awarded with a Special Mention at Ars Electronica, the Austrian festival for art, technology and society.

Silent Screen - Aurélie Lannoy

Silent Screen - Aurélie Lannoy

A moment of silence is a period of silent contemplation, prayer, reflection, or meditation. Similar to flying a flag at half-mast, a moment of silence is often a gesture of respect, particularly in mourning for those who have died recently or as part of a tragic historical event. Most commonwealth countries call it a minutes silence or a one-minute silence as that is the shortest period of silence that they observe after a tragic event.

And what if we would be free to choose the reason for that one-minute silence. For whom or what do we want to stand still?

Do we need that common moment for our quiestest thoughts? How do we behave in that situation? All in the same way? What are we really thinking about in a silent group? About that image of a little boy coverd in blood in Aleppo? About the schedual of the tram that will bring us home? About the very strong perfume of the lady next to us?

Silent Screen invite us to join our precious thoughts. To share what deeply touches us or makes us angry. A moment all together to look at ourselves on a white screen.


Silent Screen has been created in 2016 by Aurelie Lannoy and performed at the Area 42 gallery Brussels and at the Minard in Gent during the celebration festivities of Ontroerend Goed’s 15th birthday.

Supported by the Area 42 Gallery in Brussels

Ten screens invite you to an intimate experience where tears, as they are put on display, also beg to be collected.
An immersive installation made up of several portraits in order to question the anthropological and plastic dimensions of the topic at hand: the pleasure of tears and their representation.
Still Too Sad to Tell You is directly inspired by I Am Too Sad to Tell You by artist Bas Jan Ader.

4 comédiens proposent aux spectateurs de vivre une aventure intense avec eux, avant que chacun, anonyme, ne rentre chez soi. Joueurs et engagés, ils cherchent par tous les moyens à consommer cette relation charnelle et imaginaire, secrète et exposée, tantôt légère, tantôt tragique. Pour cela, ils sont prêts à flirter avec toutes les limites.

…Aurélie Lannoy, comédienne démesurée, fragile et cartoonesque, bouleverse le paysage beauté-canon, homogène et lisse de la troupe initiale. Dérangement crucial dans l’ordre du charme. Parce que dans Flirt, il s’agit bien de plaire…

Jean and Aurélie, as many other couples, often trample across the swamps of love querels, where they encounter bad faith, unending argumentation, overreaction, stuborn silences, crying, shouting, etc.

Jean and Aurélie are also the scientists of their own fights. They sort them in different categories, analyse them, make graphics and put them away in archive boxes.

…The language is lacerating, the performances bruising in their upfront intensity – and the effect is utterly exhilarating.
The Times – Sam Marlowe *****

…This experimental and unconventional performance was unflinching, brave, wild and brilliant. The humour was woven tight into the truisms that Sirens confronted, presenting a hilarious, painful and significant piece of theatre that sees modern women asking what feminism means. The title could not be more apt; from the modern day emergency sirens, which are a call to arms, signalling distress but also a rush of help and support, to the Sirens of Ancient Greece who seduce sailors with beautiful voices to shipwreck them – the screams of Ontroerend Goed confront the difficulties of navigating the turbulent waters of modern feminism in hopes of shipwrecking misogyny and providing a lifeboat for feminists, men and women alike. A triumphant and important piece, sing on Sirens.

‘A Game of You’ shows that we reveal ourselves through our behaviour, both consciously and unconsciously, but it also shows that leaked information to be illegible, at least in any objective sense. In asking us both to judge and be judged, it is judgement itself that comes under the microscope and proves, precisely as the title implies, an exercise in subjective projection.- Matt Trueman

…What’s remarkable about this 25-minute experience is the extent to which it seems to make people both think and feel… So is it true that real relationships are becoming too difficult for us? Are we such a bunch of sad cases that we need to buy a theatre ticket to get a date? Or have we just forgotten, in our earnest quest for autonomy and self-sufficiency, how to make that first move towards something that notoriously brings pain and need as well as joy and fulfilment? Ontroerend Goed’s performance never pretends to answer these questions, but it certainly raises them, more powerful than any theatre experience I can remember.
