Lîla Dance: The Hotel Experience

When the sun rises, he will choose.
Luke’s flight was cancelled. He was supposed to be flying out for the big day, his wedding. Instead, the airline booked him a hotel. Luke’s alone now, save for four walls, five missed calls, oh, and a trouser press for company.   
Pieces of memories tumble through Luke’s night. He relives the highs of romance, loves lost, drunken dancing, and firm friendships made while queueing for the loo.
Luke’s hotel experience is a night of self-doubt, misgivings, hope, joy, and reconciliation. And when the sun rises, he will choose.

Check-in to artsdepot to find out why Lîla Dance is one of Britain’s fastest growing dance companies, with a reputation for beautiful and vivid storytelling.
