An innovative theatre piece combining music, voices and dance, with a text by Caryl Churchill and music by Orlando Gough.
Hotel is in two parts:
In the first, Eight Rooms, fourteen people – tourists, couples and business people – spend an ordinary night in a hotel. But they all occupy the same space, their stories overlapping and interweaving and creating an exhilarating collage of words, voices, music and choreographed movement.
In the second, a dance piece entitled Two Nights, we see two distinct nights happening at the same time. Two people find different ways to disappear, while a diary found in another hotel room tells of one more extraordinary disappearance.
This volume contains Churchill's libretto, plus articles on the making of Hotel.
