Chaos Factory Presents

Hotel Happiness

Welcome to Hotel Happiness. An escape from reality. A retreat from yourself. A place to be whoever you want to be for 24 hours only. A time to switch off, let go, fantasize, forget. Free of interruptions and restrictions. With one rule only, you must come completely alone.

Two women, Nina and Celeste, find themselves each in their own private customised room. But what happens when their two worlds collide?

Chaos Factory is an experimental Dublin based theatre company led by Rachel Bergin, Venetia Bowe and Fionnuala Gygax.

The company was born out of a mutual interest and passion for work that is innovative, radical and physically led. We wanted to work collaboratively to devise ambitious contemporary work which pushed the boundaries of conventional narrative framework and theatrical form.


‘Our work is physically led, keeping the body at the centre of our exploration. We are dedicated to creating ambitious, multidisciplinary theatre that examines contemporary society. We experiment with theatrical form to find original ways of presenting material, creating theatre that is playful, strange and beautiful’
