February 8-16: ZITA HOTELL World Premiere in Oslo, Norway - Curated by Malika
By Martin Jacque, translated by Hilde Ljøen
A Global Oslo Music and Nordic Black Theatre production
The furniture at the Zita Hotel is worn out, the varnish on the reception desk is coming off and the electrical system is about to break down. Silence prevails, until five people suddenly meet in this lonely hotel, far from everything. What is bothering Zita, the spontaneous and colorful cabaret singer? The grumpy writer Sisco writes his diary in deep concentration. What happened in his life since he refuses to show the diary to anybody? Why does the new, elegant but unpleasant guest Albin have all these thoughts of revenge on his mind – and a gun in his luggage? Romantic, naive Mercedes has no suitcase at all when she books a room for one or two nights. She easily starts to cry and doesn’t want to live anymore. Confrontations between the four are inevitable, and during a few intense hours, the truth about their lives comes out. 
Cast: Terese Mungai, Biniam Abbai Gezai, Sofia Knudsen Estifanos, Guillermo John Magno, composer & musician Bonfire Madigan Shive
Director: Cliff A. Moustache, Assistant director: Deise Faria Nunes
