History

The Satori Group was founded in 2006 in Cincinnati, Ohio by eleven graduating students of two colleges, the University of Cincinnati – College-Conservatory of Music and Williams College. Their initial production was the original piece iLove:, which preniered at the 2007 Cincinnati Fringe Festival. iLove: earned the Cincinnati Producer’s Pick of the Fringe and was nominated for the Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Best Alternative Production.

Since then, the group has created three original works and presented a wide array of productions. They presented Hello Again at The Hustler Soundstage, and the Regional Premiere productions of The Investigation of the Murder in El Salvador and Never Swim Alone at The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center. Their original work (rsvp) premiered at the 2008 Cincinnati Fringe Festival, earning Cincinnati CityBeat’s Critic’s Pick.

In Spring 2008, The Satori Group relocated to Seattle, Washington. In August 2008 Satori hosted the creators of the Frank Suzuki Aesthetic, John Nobbs and Jacqui Carroll. In March 2009 Satori made its Seattle debut with Will Eno's TRAGEDY: a tragedy.

On August 12, 2009, the group announced their 2009-2010 season, Choose, Witness, Live, which included Artifacts of Consequence, Winky and The Making of a Monster at the Northwest New Works Festival at On The Boards. On January 29th and 30th, 2010, Satori hosted a special presentation of UNDINE by Hand2Mouth Theatre followed by a panel discussion on "New Work in the Pacific Northwest" hosted by Brendan Kiley (The Stranger). Winky received the Seattle Times Footlight Award for Avant-garde Afterglow.

In 2011 Satori presented Fabulous Prizes by Neil Ferron, who was nominated for the Gregory Award for Outstanding Playwright.
