Details

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 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. 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, the latest, This Floating World being a collaboration with others including his brother Brian.

‘one of the most anarchic, maniacal hours of circus, perfect’ Matt Trueman Fest

Lost in Translation enjoy an ever growing reputation as leaders in the field of narrative driven circus shows. They are a UK based company with an international membership that was originally founded as an acrobatic duo by Circus Space graduates in 2006. The company has since become one of the country’s leading ensembles and now tours widely throughout the UK and Europe. Their show The Hogwallops was a big hit at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and has toured internationally to great acclaim.
