The NITE hotel opens its doors to host Club Guy & Roni’s SWAN LAKE, a performance that blurs the line between reality and the digital world.
Where does the real world end and the game begin?
Club Guy & Roni reinvented a Russian ballet classic to interpret the challenges of the 21st century. Swan Lake blends the themes of escapism, responsibility and choice in a performance, both in the theater and online. The NITE hotel offers a unique online experience; the people in the online audience not only create their own narrative, but also affect those of the spectators in the theater.
After each act you will be asked to make a choice: who will be the black swan? How will the story end? YOU decide. The collective future is in your hands… or in your keyboard.
For a sneak peak behind the curtains of the NITE hotel, Club Guy & Roni’s director Guy Weizman has something in store for you. Watch this video to explore our virtual world.
You are not alone
Every player is a firefly. Together apart, you will fly alongside each other during the performance. Other challenges wait: we’ve hidden some swan eggs along the way. Crack them open with a click and enjoy the surprise inside.
Don’t fly away when the show is over! In the bar of the NITE hotel you can meet the other fireflies. Get to know the other players and don’t forget to exit through the gift shop.

What is the NITE hotel?
Unlike a mere streaming platform, our digital theater, the NITE hotel takes inspiration from the new togetherness that stay-at-home orders bring along. How can we form a community while being apart? What is theater when theaters are closed? The international contemporary dance company Club Guy & Roni, together with its partners, explored the infinite possibilities of the online world.
