A show inspired by T. S. Eliot’s poetry which shows an ordinary day in the life of a 21st century man. The daily life of Homo Peregrinus is split and merges back between home and work. His wanderings try to make sense of an existence devoid of spirituality, love, or beauty. Homo Peregrinus lives in a digital, sad, and grotesque world where consumerism is the only religion. He himself lives in a shop window. The show has been performed in many cities in Poland, but also in Canada, China, Croatia, England, France, Georgia, Germany, Iran, Korea, Lithuania, Romania, Russia, Spain, and the USA.
TEATR KTO creates street shows which have seen the participation of over one and a half million people. KTO has held the status of the Municipal Theatre of Krakow under the direction of Jerzy Zon since 2005. The KTO Theatre has made numerous outdoor shows staging the most relevant historical events in Polish and European history, such as “De la Revolution”, on the two-hundredth anniversary of the French Revolution, “The Refugees”, an installation on the fall of the Berlin Wall, “The Polish Chronicle” when Poland became a member of the EU. KTO Theater has organized 31 editions of Krakow’s International Street Theatre Festival and other cultural projects.
