Business As Usual, produced by ZOU Theatre Company, is a surreal glance into the seedy underbelly of big business in a post -crash world, created by the company and directed by Viktor Lukawski (seen in Tarragon/TheatreRUN’s The Double and Old Trout Puppet Workshop’s Ignorance).
A once-successful corporation is flying off the rails: the employees are running wild and the execs are drowning in the turbulent waves of their own excess. To the outside world, all is as it should be, but behind closed doors, a noose is tightening, tensions are rising, and the coffee pot is overflowing as this corporate Twilight Zone reaches unsustainable heights of madness. This is PTSD for the financial class.
Lukawski is joined on stage by fellow co-creators Adam Paolozza (director/performer of The Double, Dora Award for Spent) and Nicolas Di Gaetano (seen in Ignorance, and the award winning Countries Shaped like Stars).
The show is presented as part of The Independent Creators Cooperative – a new theatre collaboration that brings together three emerging companies – supported by two established companies – Why Not Theatre and Theatre Smith-Gilmour – with three physical theatre productions that inaugurate the BMO Incubator for Live Arts at The Theatre Centre’s new home.
