World Premiere / Exclusive to Adelaide

  • About

    An experiential work of dance theatre set in the Hilton Adelaide hotel. Check in with your fellow guests and be immersed into a poignant and at times hilarious imaginative environment.

    On this travelling adventure, the Hilton’s sophisticated bar and luxe rooms with views are contrasted by the stark undertones of the nooks and crannies of its back-of-house operations. Guided by an evocative soundscape by Jason Sweeney, the physical conversation takes a similarly diverse journey. Witness a tender and cheeky duet in a private room, then an urgent physical explosion in the loading dock. All looks neat and tidy but what is going on behind the scenes of these emotional dance vignettes?

    Challenging themes of visibility, authority, self-worth and relationships, the dancers ask you to uncover meaning in the delicately crafted movement. Both elegant and humorous, be surprised and enchanted by this exquisite performance experience.
