Welcome to the city. Where will you find yourself? Lose yourself? Check in. Be led astray. Together. Alone. Across distances, time zones.
Who are you? Who might you become?
Take part in a unique immersive event that leads you through the city and into a hotel. Featuring an impressive line-up of local live art makers and three European guest collaborators, Hotel Obscura is a melding of audio experience and one-on-one encounters in hotel rooms and other spaces.
Conceived and developed by Triage Live Art Collective, Hotel Obscura has had seasons in Berlin, Linz, Marseille, Vienna and Athens, activating each city with performances and installations from the public to the radically intimate.
