A man is admitted to the top floor ward of a rather unusual hospital where each floor denotes a different severity of illness. However, due to a Kafkaesque series of events, he finds himself being shuttled downwards from floor to floor. Is Giovanni Corte really dying? And is anyone prepared to admit it? The dark comedy of SEVEN FLOORS remains as satirically relevant today as it was when it was first performed in Kuala Lumpur in 2000 and then in 2011. This year, theatrethreesixty’s artistic director Christopher Ling revisits Dino Buzzati’s short story through the eyes of an actor and a dancer-choreographer.
