THE SATORI GROUP is an ensemble of theatre makers generating new work with an eye toward audience experience. Through an intensely collaborative process, we build detailed theatrical worlds that viscerally embody our questions about where the small, the domestic, the personal meet the large, the political, the collective. Our work approaches uncertainty as a positive, as the place where change happens. We look at the cracking of facades and the crumbling of structures with compassion and humor, so that we may sincerely attempt something new. Satori productions are designed to speak intimately to the individual with moments of collective resonance


SATORI WAS FOUND IN 2007 by a group of graduates from Williams College and UC’s College Conservatory of Music (CCM). The company has been based in Seattle since 2008. Satori consists of eleven core company members (including seven founding members) and a continually expanding group of associate artists. The Satori Group was nominated for a 2014 Stranger Genius Award in Performance.

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS SUPPORTS the work of the Satori Group and provides mission-based leadership and strategic governance. While Satori’s Artistic Director and Managing Director lead day-to-day operations, the Board relationship is a partnership and is critical. Board members serve as ambassadors for the organization. This is an extraordinary opportunity for individuals who are passionate about Satori’s mission and have a track record of board or community leadership.
