Object Collection returns to the Incubator Arts Project with a bold new opera tackling the suspension and simulation of life. Object Collection’s No Hotel is an opera about hotels, films, and bad behavior. The piece channels the split-screen experience of Warhol’s “Chelsea Girls” – a pre-produced film runs side-by-side with the live performance. The script from one is performed in reverse in the other. Accompanied by a live ensemble, No Hotel is an opera unlike any other: part theater, part film, part aggressive noise, part delicate chamber music.

No Hotel is collectively conceived by Kara Feely, Travis Just, Daniel Kötter, and Elisa LimbergNo
