Saturday 30 May–Saturday 06 June Weekdays 14:00–17:30 Weekends 11:00–17:00 A crime drama packed with action, black humour, raging emotions, and excellent masque. Strange incidents occur at the pleasant skiing establishment Hotel Paradiso. The hotel is run by a family whose members all carry secrets: The maid is a kleptomaniac and the chef is a tad too fond of mincing meat ­ and not only meat – from animals. In the middle of this love drama and power struggle, corpses start turning up. Will the guests notice anything? Is there any chance of avoiding the hotel's downfall? The stage is set for a display of intrigue and humour à la John Cleese's Fawlty Towers. Critics all over Europe have been mesmerized by the pace and precision of this production. The German ensemble Familie Flöz have specialised in entertaining performances for the whole family, and their productions are a mix of physical comedy, masque and mime. Without spoken words, but with breathtaking body language and expressive masques, the audience is drawn into their dark and humorous tales.
