Capitalisme tardif

Jean-Philippe Baril Guérard

The coming decades will be the stage for a chaos the likes of which humanity has never seen before. Civilization as we know it will disappear: oceans will rise, the air will overheat, and our planet will be shaken by increasingly common extreme meteorological incidents. It would be natural to wallow in fear if you were not, by chance, more cunning than average: the end of the world will be a business opportunity. And since you just paid me twenty dollars, let me explain how you’ll be able to make a buck out of it.

For nearly ten years, actor, writer, and director Jean-Philippe Baril Guérard has been developing a body of work exploring the worst humanity has to offer, with, among others, Royal (novel, 2016), Manuel de la vie sauvage (novel, 2018) and Tranche-Cul (play, 2014).
