Montréal’s 375th is thrilled to be able to add a touch of magic to the Just For Laughs programming with the We’re Acting Out! performances.
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy… watch as this troupe of men and women try to escape the drudgery of a consumerist society.
The show depicts a single day in the life of an individual of the 21st century. The contemporary "Everyman", whose life is "suspended" between Home and Work for a corporation, identifies his or her "pathway through life" as a "pathway to work". The peregrination in search of the meaning of life comes into view through everyday toil, deprived of spirituality, love and beauty.
The world of the "Pererginus" is a "digital" civilization—sad, terrifying and grotesque, where consumerism turns into a dominant religion. A mobile character of the show exposes the adventures of the protagonist in various contexts of urban space. Homo Peregrinus is a formatted human being stripped of emotionality, predictable and bereft of individual characteristics.
