About the show
In a society with only one intended life path, we look at Hotel Rock Bottom: an absurd reintegration institute that presents itself as the perfect getaway. The guests – or rather clients – check in when they do not meet expectations. Within the walls of Hotel Rock Bottom, you follow a young woman who is trained, conditioned and manipulated. It is not possible to deviate from the standard.
How do people deal with pressure and expectation? An inescapable question in today’s society that is full of urge to perform. The social pressure holds on to the five young women of MAN || CO. Constantly meeting all expectations and requirements is not feasible, but failure seems to be no option at all.

The mission of MAN || CO is to make modern dance accessible. To reach a new and diverse audience, the five-member collective makes dance performances with a theatrical slant. In addition to theatre stages, the performances also take place on diverse locations and during festivals. As a result, the company leaves the standard path of the dance world and reaches the audience that would otherwise not come into contact with modern dance. In the media, the collective is adored:
“With absurdism and humor, MAN || CO focuses on the topics of conformism versus non-conformism. ”
“Hotel Rock Bottom is an original and witty show that will make you happy and that would fit perfectly on De Parade in addition to the Dutch stages.”
“This young collective’s energy is amazing!”
