Hotel Paradiso in Harlow
A brilliantly funny new circus show for all the family from Lost in Translation, the multinational, multi-skilled creators of The Hogwallops
Thrillingly spectacular circus skills blend seamlessly with physical comedy, clowning, juggling, theatrical storytelling and slapstick in this colourful, loud and funny show for all the family from Lost in Translation. Hotel Paradiso is coming to Harlow Playhouse on Sunday 17 February for two performances at 2pm and 7pm. as part of a national tour.
In the show we meet Madame and the charming staff of the quirkily ineffective Hotel Paradiso. Looming large is 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 of wits with the Banker as he plots to claim the building in order 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, purveyors of ‘good old fashioned contemporary 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.
Lost in Translation Director and show creator Massimiliano Rossetti said ‘We brought The Hogwallops to Harlow a couple of years ago and had such a good time with a really lovely audience that we wanted to be sure to bring Hotel Paradiso as soon as possible’.
‘Fun for all the family’ Daily Record

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