Hotel Éternité

by Yannis Kalavrianos

21th-25th June 2023 | 20:00-21:30

Theater stok, Zürich

In Greek with german & english supertitles 


Hotel Éternité is not an ordinary hotel. It’s a place of eternal youth and happiness, a place where you arrive and never leave, a place where all dreams can come true. Everyone has a reason to be there: some seek an utopia, some a place to hide, and some a place to live forever. Everything has a set routine: Mary, the owner of Hotel Éternité, and the staff are fully dedicated to their mission. There are no clocks or watches in this hotel and words like time and death are forbidden. Time doesn’t matter anyway in this paradise. Until the arrival of a new staff member that brings out old stories and new reactions. Can things ever change or do they stay the same in timeless oblivion?


“Humanity needs eternity!”


Hotel Eternité by Yannis Kalavrianos was first  staged at the National Theatre of Greece in Athens in 2020. Terrasse Ensemble brings this modern Greek theatre play to Theater Stok in Zurich in Greek, with German surtitles. The plot, which unravels before the audience is presented from the perspective of the hotel staff: their relationships, affairs, and fights reveal the secrets behind the façade of this “Hotel”. Eight performers and one musician on stage and eight recorded performers present the incredible, surreal, and surprising story of Hotel Éternité. 

This staging of Hotel Éternité incorporates the inspiration and collaborative creation that characterises the works of Terrasse Ensemble: all assets of the performance (costumes, music, setting etc) are original and innovative. At the same time, the potential that the ensemble has for an all-inclusive, collective commitment, results to the creation of a surreal, magical and yet fragile world on stage.
