Long Distance Hotel is Leo Preston, Tiago Rodriguez, Judith Davies, Tonan Quito, Goran Sergej Pristas and Gilles Polet

Lisbon,Portugal - 2010

LONG DISTANCE HOTEL is a project initiated by Mundo Perfeito. A theatre performance that would be created online, using any means of internet based long distance communication. Over the course of 6 months, 6 artists from 5 different European cities spent their time carefully planning the performance. When finally meeting for the first time in real live the artists were 3 days away from opening night. These were the only 3 days that were spend with all 6 physically in the same room at the same time. Using the material produced in 846 emails, Long Distance Hotel was created.

For the expanded version, LONG DISTANCE HOTEL-REVISITED, the artists moved away from the conventional theatre staging to a version where the audience would be sitting on stage, among the performers, surrounded by 6 screens all projecting 6 seemingly different and random slideshows of photographs. During the performance a collection of texts, live music and movement scores interweave in an evenly random seeming order. But the more the performance progresses, the more the audience realizes that nothing is random, but everything is rather carefully unfolding a grander scheme.
