Theatre Nation is proud to present the internationally acclaimed Theatre director, designer and performer Thaddeus Phillips in the UK premiere of ZOO MOTEL. Mysterious & playful, and filled with Phillip’s hallmark theatricality, ZOO MOTEL is a live (yet remote) interactive & intimate theatrical / cinematic play broadcast live from a village in South America.
This wildly inventive exploration of the possibilities of live virtual theatre and the magic of cinema combines a creative use of zoom and complex camera choreography to create a play that has the feel of live theatre yet within the framework of a movie. ZOO MOTEL opened in September in the USA and has quickly become a cult smash hit in the world of online remote performance.
By booking a ticket for Zoo Motel, guests reserve one of only 21 ‘rooms’. Then a “ZOO MOTEL WELCOME PACK”, is emailed which includes a printable room key, motel stationary, a brochure and interactive set piece. Room guests should also bring, by any means necessary, a deck of cards.
