Thrillingly spectacular circus skills blend seamlessly with physical comedy, clowning, juggling, theatrical storytelling and slapstick in this colourful, loud and funny show from Lost in Translation.
In the show we meet Madame and the charming staff of
the quirkily ineffective Hotel Paradiso. Looming large is their arch enemy, the dastardly Banker, who schemes to repossess the hotel. As the tenants introduce
us to their beloved home we witness their battle of wits with the Banker as he plots to claim the building in order to sell and maximise his profit. Will they manage to stay open, or will they be forced to move on?
The irrepressible Lost in Translation Circus, purveyors of ‘good old fashioned contemporary circus’, were the team behind international hit The Hogwallops.
Here they turn a rundown hotel into their own physical playground as a multinational cast of six highly skilled acrobats, clowns and jugglers tell the story of the tenants’ battle to save their home and livelihood from repossession by the dastardly banker. Daring, heart-stoppingly virtuosic aerial skills, stunning floor acrobatics and juggling combine with laugh out loud clowning and physical comedy to deliver thrills, gasps, laughs and drama, plenty for both adults and children to enjoy.
Lost in Translation Director and show creator Massimiliano Rossetti said ‘We created Hotel Paradiso in the same spirit as The Hogwallops and we think that all those who loved that show so much will be equally
thrilled by this new one’.
Hotel Paradiso is at the Underbelly Circus Hub on The Meadows from 13 to 24 August (not 19th) at 12.10pm daily.tickets are £13.50 to £15.50
