Electric Hotel is a lonely, bizarre and beautiful outdoor spectacle; a uniquely designed, fly-by-night hotel brought to vivid life through dance and sound.
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: natural habits, unnatural fantasies and wildly eccentric housekeeping.
