Scenic collective

HOTEL

Hotel is born with the wish to build crossroads which will allows us to inhabit other creators’ worlds and imaginaries. The group invites artists from different performing disciplines to create and direct them.

Who are we?

Hotel’s staff we trained together until we graduated in contemporary dance at the Institut del Teatre in 2005. From then on we have been able to learn from many artistic experiences, teachers and other colleagues who have helped us grow professionally over than more decade. Sometimes we have crossed paths, others we have followed the others’s at a distance. Apart from dancing, we teach, we assist directors, and we have cultivated interest in others artistic aspects.With this background, we want to transform ourselves into the staff of a hotel without walls or ceiling where we want to host artists of different scenic disciplines.
