Hotel Medea, reviewed previously by Londonist, is back in town. If you didn’t catch it last time we can assure you that this time is not to be missed. Beginning at midnight and lasting until dawn, Hotel Medea is an interactive promenade performance that starts with a Thames river crossing and ends with breakfast in the hazy morning light of the Docklands. In between you can expect a Brazilian party soundtracked by DJ Dolores, a quasi-religious ritual, cabaret show and all important cups of hot chocolate.

A product of an ongoing three year long collaboration between Para Active, a theatre project based in East London, and Zecora Ura theatre, based in London and Rio de Janeiro, Hotel Medea promises an exciting and truly original theatrical experience that will have the audience fully immersed in the action from start to finish. After stepping aboard the ferry at the O2 centre the audience is led to a marketplace where the story begins as Medea and Jason marry, to an accompanying frenzy of music and dance, and the adventure continues throughout the historic building at Trinity Buoy Wharf through the night.

If you like your theatre interactive, original and all night long then we encourage you not to miss out on this!

Performances take place on 23rd, 24th, 30th, 31st July and 6th and 7th August. Times 11pm-5.30 AM. The journey starts at the QEII pier, North Greenwich, and ends at Trinity Buoy Wharf although audience members will be driven to their choice of Canning Town or Stratford for onward transport.
