The Satori Group Programs
Our programming falls into three categories: The Lab, Production and Community Forums.
A physical space devoted to the development of artists and their projects, seeing them from idea to product. Each of the Satori Group's productions is first worked in the LAB, which emphasizes the research and development phases, and is designed to fully support early stages of creative development.
Since June 2007, the Satori Group has produced eight full-length shows and three works in progress. The Satori Group's work has been seen at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival, the Carnegie Theatre in Covington, KY and On the Boards in Seattle, WA.
Satori has established itself as a hub of the Seattle theatre community, where artists and community members meet for discussion and collaboration. We host free and open to the public events several times a year. Essential to these has been the development of the LAB as a physical and creative home. The Satori Group continues to pursue mission based programming that provide a sustainable model to support the current and future use of Satori's home base.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
We were proud to present the critically acclaimed world premiere of Martyna Majok's reWilding on March 1st at the LAB. The inaugural production in our new space, reWilding represented Satori's largest collaborative production to date: featuring a cast of ten, original music, outside designers, and a development process with the playwright spanning eighteen months. Satori was also featured in The Stranger’s Spring A&P Quarterly. From that feature: “with every passing production, the Satori Group gets a little bolder and pushes itself a little further…. Lucky us.”
We are proud to present The Land Is Always Known, a collaboration with musical duo The Bengsons, at On the Board's Main Stage as part of this year's North West New Works festival on June 15-16; the biggest stage we've ever performed on! This summer, we'll return to Williams College to teach ensemble development for two weeks with a group of students, and we'll push forward with the development of two (or three!) new Satori projects. Help us take the next steps of ensemble and organizational development that continue to make Satori the most promising young ensemble in Seattle!
