the Satori Group (Seattle, WA) – The Land is Always Known
The Satori Group are one of the most energetic and consistent theater ensembles in the Northwest. They always bring serious production values to the table, with strong visual style and a variety of creation methods to suit the material they’re tackling. Add in the Bengsons, a soulful folk duo from San Francisco to create an original musical? BRING. IT. ON.
The Satori Group is a regionally recognized and critically acclaimed theatre ensemble, dedicated to the creation and production of new work and collaborative exchange. We create and present theatrical events, host interdisciplinary forums, and share evolving methods of training and workshop. The twelve Company Members and five Associate Artists invest themselves fully in creating and supporting innovative theatre.
A theatrical collaboration between the Satori Group and musical duo The Bengsons, The Land is Always Known is a rollicking musical attempt to create a new American mythology and help reconfigure our troubled DNA. What if we consider ourselves first generation non-violent? We are refugees from a culture of violence. Our new heroine is the dam- a bridge between our violent past and present- what may happen when we let her speak?
