Once again, Nesterval calls for a quirky and suspenseful performance adventure inside an empty building in Vienna. Inspired by Faust and dance films from the 1980s, the group will take the audience on a journey to Hotel Nesterval in the 1960s, where they will encounter bizarre hotel guests and deceitful staff. The mystery they will have to solve is: Why did two young employees of the hotel have to die? More than 20 actors will draw the audience into this story. The more you get involved, the deeper you will be dragged into it, and each visit might take a different course and outcome.
Nesterval’s is in an uproar, as the hotel director has invited people for the end of the season, and one surprise guest is supposed to entertain both the staff and the guests. But before the party begins, two employees are found dead. What now? What if there is no one to say what to do and where to go? What would one want to know? Whom would one follow? The visitors delve into the story in sequences of immersive theatre, determining new fates for the hotel guests every night.
Nesterval’s cast of more than 30 includes performers, drag artists and amateur actors, who will outline the history of the Nesterval family in various constellations. In a mix of classic gaming and immersive theatre, Herr Finnland and his team create performance adventures that turn their participants into actors in the play, authorised to determine what happens next. Nesterval has a repertory of ten public city adventures, but they have also staged numerous commissioned works, such as Nesterval. The Final Ball (imagetanz Festival, brut Wien, 2016), Where the F*** Is Alice (Karl’s Day, 2017), The Return of Eleonore Nesterval (steirischer herbst 2015).
