Hotel Watercage

Am I lost forever
Do I give up my search
To pull myself together
Or do I allow love back in 
To find happiness
As well as my way home
Which do I follow
My head or my heart

Hotel Watercage is a remarkable aerial performance by Theater Tol which portrays this battle between the head and the heart. The main characters of Hotel Watercage appear to have lost each other forever. On top of that, they seem to have lost themselves entirely. Some of them are literally trapped in their cages, while others are suspended high above the audience. The world around them seems to drift further and further away. Despite the hopelessness of their situation, they make frantic attempts to regain their grip on reality. They keep fighting to find the key to happiness. They never give up, trying to free themselves from what’s going on in their minds. Until they eventually break free from their past. 

Hotel Watercage is an outdoor performance that takes you on a 45-minute adventure in a surreal world in which humans, animals and plants are connected to each other. A dancer tries to win his lover back. Women are trapped in huge cages. Birds fly freely in the sky. An opera singer arrives from high altitude. Finally Hotel Watercage ends every evening in a rousing finale. It is only through water that there is life. During this poetic performance you will be delighted by dancers, singers, actors and a lot of live music. You return home feeling refreshed and purified by the beautiful finale. Your inner self will radiate with the healing power of freedom and water. And you shall notice it, because, remember, you too are made up of 60% water. 

Hotel Watercage is the newest production by Theater Tol. It premiered on the 16th of August 2017 at Te Boelaerpark during the Summer of Antwerp.
