Loose Tongue in association with Green Rooms Hotel and the Old Red Lion Theatre present HOTEL EUROPE – a meditation on borders impassable, invisible, broken, and rebuilt.
When you arrive at HOTEL EUROPE, where you’re from doesn’t matter. But your key could take you anywhere. Explore a building where behind every door is a new story, a new place, a new perspective. Part interactive theatre, part audio installation, these five aural snapshots give the listener privileged access to secret histories, treasured, passed down, forgotten, or threatened.
HOTEL EUROPE is created by Isley Lynn (Skin A Cat, Little Stitches) and Philipp Ehmann (Sie Und Wir, Rozznjogd) with emerging and award-winning writers Tom Black, Ben Hudson, Rafaella Marcus, Gael Le Cornec and Milly Thomas, and hosted by the Green Rooms Hotel in Wood Green.
With sound designed by Will Alder, HOTEL EUROPE uses radio drama techniques alongside binaural recordings à la Simon McBurney’s The Encounter and a variety of hidden and repurposed technology to immerse audience members in plays that feature voice talents of Jessica Clark (Rotterdam), Liz Jadav (The Twits, Stone Face), and many more.
Step inside the skin of a stranger, and explore their world…
HOTEL EUROPE will present five short audio plays, each of which inhabits its own hotel room, where solo audience members will have free reign to engage and with the worlds of the story, real and imaginary. HOTEL EUROPE will run all day from 11am-10pm, Mon 20th – Sun 26th Feb.
After the run at Green Rooms, HOTEL EUROPE will also be available as a digital experience, supported by MGCfutures and created in partnership with Epiphany VR, allowing the rest of the UK & the world to experience the pieces.
