In their new project, Lisbon-based theatre company Teatro da Cidade explores our relationship to work. Beginning with the concept of Karōshi, a Japanese word meaning “death from overwork”, the collective turns its attention to the limits of the human body in a society that requires quick and efficient production, even as basic compensation comes under threat. As work fills our days, the world becomes a place of work. What is left for the people of the 21st century but to give in to gravity, fall asleep on the metro or steps of the train station, ever more alienated from life, until succumbing completely?
