What is it?
After winning the Innovation Award at last year’s festival, Exit Productions return to VAULT 2019 with the world premiere of Fight Night; their most ambitious immersive project to date.
Fury, excitement and tension build as two boxers enter the ring and it is up to the audience to decide who is crowned the champion.
A knock out can change a life. A points decision can end a career. With a live fight every night the audience can become kingmakers, influencing the outcome of the bout. Recreating the thrills of live boxing, Fight Night will also offer the opportunity to meet the people behind the scenes orchestrating the excitement, including trainers, promoters and the fighter’s own family.
As whispers and rumours run rife through the arena before the fight, it is up to the audience how they will use the information; to influence the outcome, to find out where the corruption is coming from or to make some money.
Boxing is on the rise, with the heavy-weight division gaining the sort of popularity that hasn’t been seen since the days of Mike Tyson. Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury are among the international superstars whose huge personalities drive the live spectacles. Bringing the drama of these fine-tuned rivalries, Fight Night explores bravado and the clash between public and private personas.
