HOTEL PROJECT Comes To New York And New Jersey

By: Jan. 04, 2012

After a sold-out run in Querétaro, Mexico in July, Hotel Project will receive its United States premiere at two Tri-state hotels January 27 through February 5, 2012. Produced by The Internationalists and Neighborhood Productions, Hotel Project is a theatrical experience for one spectator at a time, performed in and inspired by a hotel and created by local and international teams of playwrights and directors.

Conceived by Internationalists director Ana Margineanu and developed in collaboration with director Tamilla Woodard, Hotel Project will bring together artists from five countries to create an immersive theatrical experience performed in separate rooms of a hotel and given for a single spectator at a time.

Each audience member is given the opportunity to view three rooms in an evening. Once inside, the plays begin to unfold and the spectator becomes the proverbial “fly on the wall;” an invisible witness to strange, unique and intimate stories. The event allows the spectator to take a peek in someone else’s room.

Hotel Project participating artists include: Mexican playwright/director Alfonso Cárcamo, Spanish playwright Beatriz Cabur, American director Doug Howe, Romanian director Ana Margineanu, Romanian playwright Peca Stefan, Argentinean playwright Matias Umpierrez, and American director Tamilla Woodard. Three 15-minute plays will be developed specifically for The Grand Summit Hotel in Summit, New Jersey to be performed January 27 through 29, 2012. Three new plays will be developed the following week for the Washington Jefferson Hotel in New York City and performed February 3 through 5, 2012.

Tickets for Hotel Project are extremely limited. Tickets are $45 for performances January 27 through 29 at The Grand Summit Hotel (570 Springfield Ave, Summit) in New Jersey and $55 for performances February 3 through 5 at the Washington Jefferson Hotel (318 West 51st Street, between 8th & 9th Ave., Subway: C/E or 1 to 50th Street) in midtown Manhattan. Tickets may be purchased in advance at or by calling 866-811-4111. The performance times in New Jersey on Friday run 5:45 pm until 9:20 pm and on Saturday and Sunday 1:45 pm until 9:20 pm. The performance times in New York on Friday run 6:00 to 9:40 pm and Saturday and Sunday 1:45 pm until 9:40 pm.

Adapted for local hotels in major cities around the world, the uniqueness of Hotel Project consists in the relationship between the performer and the spectator. For participating artists, it offers the prospect of deep collaboration across national and lingual borders and the creation of lasting artistic partnerships and creative influence.

Hotel Project was originally created in collaboration between The Internationalists and the Mexico theatre-based companies Seres Comunes and Sabadijas De Palacio.

Hotel Project is generously supported by Consulate General of Spain in New York, The Romanian Cultural Institute of New York.
