Electric Hotel is a uniquely designed outdoor spectacle, a fly-by-night hotel brought vividly to life through dance and sound. Read More >

Some time ago, an unspeakable incident destroyed the reputation of the five star Electric Hotel. The woman involved in the event returns. Sitting on the outside looking in, the audience snatch glimpses of the do-not-disturb lives unfolding behind the floor to ceiling windows. Wearing headphones to eavesdrop on the internal spaces of the building they watch the residents in their private rooms: the natural habits, the unnatural fantasies and housekeeping of wildly varied quality.

Electric Hotel is a uniquely designed outdoor spectacle, a fly-by-night hotel brought vividly to life through dance and sound by the team of David Rosenberg (director and co-founder of Shunt) and Frauke Requardt (choreographer for Pictures From An Exhibition at Sadler’s Wells/Young Vic) with Börkur Jónsson (designer of Woyzeck at the Barbican Theatre and Metamorphosis at the Lyric Hammersmith) and Ben and Max Ringham (composition and sound design).

The weird and wonderful Electric Hotel appears against the dramatic and unusual backdrop of the last remaining Victorian ironwork Gas Holder at King’s Cross Central.

Electric Hotel is staged at Goods Way, King’s Cross (Gasholder No.8), London, NW1
