In a world where emails & social media follow us around on our phones, is the digital world we live in, changing the way we work? How do we measure success? Money in the bank? Time on our hands? Smiles?
Follow a group of friends, constantly hired and fired, stuck in the void between their bank balances and their diminishing social lives. As they battle against nightmare bosses, ill fitting suits and their social media history, will they ever find the illusive ‘Work-Life Balance’. Does it even exist?
Using the words of real people, dynamic choreography and projection, The Commuters asks us all the question, do we live to work, or work to live?
Following our ACE supported R&D of ‘The Profession’ in early 2017, we were inspired to create: ‘The Commuters’
'The Commuters' is a brand new physical theatre show, supported by Arts Council England, The Grand Theatre Blackpool, The Lowry and Institute for Social Futures and will be touring the North of England in Autumn 2018.
