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.

Clownery, dance, mime, physical theatre and visuality build up the production where five star customer service is performed around the table and beyond.

"Delicious clownery"
Turun Sanomat
"...ever-expressive, endlessly destructive Inga Bjorn and Kristina Tammisalo - like a Finnish female Laurel and Hardy - is a shot of Espresso for anyone who's been trapped in the office for too long"
"The Receptionists is a delightful act of finessed near-wordless buffoonery"
The Telegraph
