About Hotel Obscura

The setting for the event was a hotel in Vienna run by refugees where guests meet different artists in one-to-one settings. The event asked participants to what extent is someone willing to open themselves up to a stranger and enter into an encounter?

Die Fabrikanten have been working as artists and curators for 27 years and are based in Linz, Austria.

Hotel Obscura is part of a wider project that culminated in hotel-based performance projects in four cities: Athens, Melbourne, Tours and Vienna.

It is currently being developed and produced by Triage, Erin Milne & Arts House (AUS); Die Fabrikanten (AT), Mezzanine Spectacles, GK Theater, La Folie Kilomètre & La Transplanisphère (FR) & Ohi Pezoume (GR) in Europe.

The aim of the project is to develop a rich program of intercultural and artistic exchanges that investigate live art and interdisciplinary performance art and to form and long-term artistic collaborations and networks for all partners and  cities involved.
