“The best way to rob a bank, is to own one” — William Crawford, Commissioner of the California Department of Savings and Loans
You can read 'lies' in the title, or 'eyes', or Pound, Yen, Euro and Dollar. But whether falsities or currencies, it's about money. £¥€$ invites you to get under the skin of the well-to-do 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. And who knows, you might make the world a better place, more fair, more responsible, because you'll do things differently, or maybe the taste for greed will overtake?
Returning to Adelaide with a cast of performers from Belgium and Hong Kong, the acclaimed company behind popular shows such as Fight Night and The Smile off Your Face, Ontroerend Goed, aims at what you truly value: Money.
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. **** What's On Stage - Su Carroll
