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.
Meet Madame and the charming staff of the quirkily ineffective Hotel Paradiso – and 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 with the Banker as he plots to make the building his 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 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. 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.
Hotel Paradiso also features specially written music by renowned composer and multi-instrumentalist Roger Eno. He has scored several films, theatre shows and a series of Guinness commercials as well as releasing albums under his own name.
‘one of the most anarchic, maniacal hours of circus, perfect’ Matt Trueman Fest
