Hotel Paradiso, a new circus show for all the family from Lost in Translation, the multinational creators of The Hogwallops, comes to Lancaster University’s Nuffield Theatre on February 8 and 9.

Circus skills blend with physical comedy, clowning, juggling, theatrical storytelling and slapstick for the opening dates of a national tour.

Lost in Translation turns a rundown hotel into its own physical playground as six acrobats, clowns and jugglers tell the story of a battle to save a home and livelihood.

Director and show creator Massimiliano Rossetti said, "we brought Hogwallops to The Nuffield a couple of years ago and had such a good time with a really lovely audience that it seemed a natural choice to open the Hotel Paradiso tour there."

Hotel Paradiso also features specially written music by composer and multi-instrumentalist Roger Eno. He has scored several films, theatre shows and a series of commercials as well as releasing albums under his own name, the latest, This Floating World being a collaboration with others including his famed brother Brian.

The show runs for one hour.
