This month take the elevator 64-storeys sky-high to the decadent Peppers Soul Penthouse and dive head-first into the seductive cultural phenomenon that is “Hotelling”. The brainchild of celebrated Australian interactive artist David Pledger and Bleached Arts’ genre-pushing artistic director Louise Bezzina, “Hotelling” sees the five-star hotel of Peppers Soul transform into the grandest of stages for a contemporary cultural experience like no other. Summoned to Peppers’ breathtaking Penthouse apartment, with uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean, audience members are invited into the intoxicating world of ‘Richard Hightower’ (Macdonald); one of the world’s richest businessmen who will conduct his most extravagant connivance in honour of his 118th birthday. “Hotelling” injects audience members into the heart of the story, where they feast not only on Hightowers’ intriguing tale, but also on sumptuous bites and sommelier-curated wines from Peppers’ hatted restaurant, Seaduction. This is one party-cum-performance not to be missed.
