Luigi Ciotta take us back in time: an imaginary hotel, full of guest and too many old suitcases. It’s the 1930’s and music accompanies our delightful porter in his fight against the overwhelming forces of caos. The show combines physical theatre, clown and circus trickery, while the simplicity of Luigi Ciotta engages the audience who play with this charming character in this fast paced, and often, poetic piece.
