A theatrical performance taking place in a hotel room. This play featuring aliens is being launched in a non-theater environment that lies between the private and the public. The alien is an unidentified organism and for humanity, a symbol of vague unease. But the interest we show in aliens is also an indication of new values and curiosity towards the unknown, and suggests hope for the progress of mankind. This piece is the first phase in a project looking at the direction of humanity.
The hotel room itself will not be turned into a theatrical space but a radio broadcast of the play is under consideration.
