I really want to go and see Electric Hotel – would anybody else be interested? It’s running until the 19th June 2010.
Electric Hotel is a uniquely designed outdoor spectacle, a fly-by-night hotel brought vividly to life through dance and sound by the team of David Rosenberg (director and co-founder of Shunt) and Frauke Requardt (choreographer, Pictures from an Exhibition at Sadler’s Wells/Young Vic) with Börkur Jónsson (designer, Woyzeck at Barbican, Metamorphosis at Lyric Hammersmith) and Ben and Max Ringham (composition and sound design).
The weird and wonderful Electric Hotel appears against the dramatic and unusual backdrop of the last remaining Victorian ironwork Gas Holder at King’s Cross Central.
Some time ago, an unspeakable incident destroyed the reputation of the five star Electric Hotel. The woman involved in the event returns. Sitting on the outside looking in, the audience snatch glimpses of the do-not-disturb lives unfolding behind the floor to ceiling windows. Wearing headphones to eavesdrop on the internal spaces of the building they watch the residents in their private rooms: the natural habits, the unnatural fantasies and housekeeping of wildly varied quality.
Do shout up and let me know if you fancy it! 😀
