a production by PENG!palast



Work sucks! Seriously, how useful is eagerness to work in a world full of overproduction? PENG! Palast questions the obligation to work and its positive image, goes into the abysses of unemployment, laziness and doing nothing - and sets off in Greece in search of a meaning in life without (wage) work.

Accompanied by their own compulsions and values, the theater collective gets into a turbulent whirlpool of exemplary social projects, refusal of work, dumping wages, subsidy fraud, vacation experiences, vacation animation and self-knowledge. On a multimedia stage with breathtaking digital animations, PENG! Palast takes the audience on a ride through hell - with the goal of developing a new consciousness of serenity and purposelessness.
