Family Floz

How do you dispose of a dead body in a fully-booked luxury hotel, without the clients noticing anything amiss?

Owner of a plush mountain hotel (Le Paradiso), Urs Kunz is a lifelong hunter and music-lover, who would very much like to spend more time indulging these pastimes… But instead he finds himself in constant competition with his formidably inefficient staff (Piotr the clumsy bell boy and Dolores the stubborn chamber maid), some particularly trying clients (a honeymooning couple, a group of mountain climbers, a kleptomaniac; not to mention Elsa, the high-class escort and her succession of “visitors”…) and the hotel elevator, which decides to break down in the busiest week of the year! And as if that wasn’t enough, a client suddenly decided to die.

With the help of his dream team, Urs starts looking for a way to discreetly dispose of the corpse. But, naturally, nothing goes to plan…

Familie Flöz offer up a riotously funny show with their inimitable style of masked theatre. With their startling powers of physical expression, their cohesive interplay and their astounding transformations, this troupe of clown-actors are past masters in the art of inspiring laughter and emotion in equal measure, and without ever saying a word.
