The motel project is a trilogy composed by three rooms. Motel is an uninhabited familiar place, the room for secrets, lovers and whores, the shelter for murderers, the break for travelers.
The drama, divided into episodes, is the interaction of a limited number of characters within familiar and ordinary premises. The daily flow is interrupted by extraordinary elements.
The episodes are substantially independent.
The characters and their relationships are static: each episode’s event becomes the episode itself, restoring the status quo. The tale is always ‘somewhere else’. The drama is not on the scene. A radical change will happen during the last episode. This change represents a starting point for a new drama.
