“More than any other company in the world, Ontroerend Goed know just how to get under our skin.” The Guardian (UK)

Critically acclaimed for its award-winning productions, Belgium’s Ontroerend Goed returns to New York with Audience, one of their most inventive performances. Four actors turn a camera onto the audience and examine what it means to be a viewer. Using a series of innovative techniques, <i>Audience</i> tests the limits of individual identity and exposes the simple ways a thought can be manipulated. The work toys with the viewer to tease out a visceral response. Audience sparked furious debate during its run in London. In this US Premiere, New York audiences can decide what is reality and what is purely theatrical.

Ontroerend Goed is one of Europe’s most daring theater companies. The company pushes theatrical boundaries by prying open the cracks between performer and audience offering unique experiences for courageous audiences. Ontroerend Goed, a play on words best translated as "Feel Estate," has created both intimate one-on-one performances as well as large-scale theatrical works. The company seeks to open up the medium of theater to a diverse audience by exploring the boundaries and codes of the performing arts. Ontroerend Goed has received awards and worldwide recognition for its innovative work, including an unprecedented number of Fringe First Awards at Scotland's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where Audience was also the most tweeted about show in the festival's history.
