Biljetter & info
Stage: Small stage
Running time: 60 min
A surreal tragicomedy placed in a hotel lobby, where the deepest secrets will be revealed, where the Gods and Gurus are trying to get followers and where humanity is in danger. With a language that crosses artistic boarders with fast changes between humour and darkness, dance, text and live music.
