"Gabriela Munoz reaches levels of excellence. She subverts the viewer and transports him/her to her universe, to an unreal world full of utopias.”

A spinoff show from Chameleon, these two receptionists are fast-talking smooth moving professionals in the hospitality industry. They speak multiple languages, none of which you can understand, and have an almost pathological fear of their customers.
Impressively silly and exceptionally charismatic, Inga and Kristiina have a unique and hilarious chemistry, which makes the whole experience delightfully bonkers. The aesthetically pleasing performance is strongly physical, unconventional and hilarious, suitable for all age groups. Only one performance on Saturday 7th of December!
Creation and direction: Inga Björn & Kristiina Tammisalo
