Hotel Paradiso is an old hotel doomed to close. It is run-down, but people live in it, whose life stories fill the myths and memories of that space. A banker, who wants to have the hotel to build a new venture, does everything he can to evict its inhabitants.
United to ward off the idea of leaving the hotel, the old guests relive together moments of joy and sadness they experienced there. With the strong support of the owner of Hotel Paradiso, they fight against the banker’s cowardice, in a series of fun and challenging adventures.
Acrobats, clowns and jugglers tell a story of union and struggle to save the last space of memories, using a colourful mix of daring circus skills, physical comedy and theatre, where an energetic musical score, composed by renowned English multi-instrumentalist Roger Eno.
