Object Collection's NO HOTEL is an opera about hotels, films, and bad behavior. The piece channels the split-screen experience of Warhol's "Chelsea Girls" - a pre-produced film runs side-by-side with the live performance. The script from one is performed in reverse in the other.
Accompanied by a live ensemble, NO HOTEL is an opera unlike any other: part theater, part film, part aggressive noise, part delicate chamber music. Radical, funny, and fierce, "I hope this is the future," -Robert Ashley.
