Zoo Motel by Thaddeus Phillips
Co-presented with Theatre Direct

Internationally acclaimed director, designer and performer Thaddeus Phillips invites you into the mysterious & playful Zoo Motel, an interactive and immersive theatrical event created for the here & now. Phillips brings his signature dazzling stagecraft direct into your home in collaboration with the designer and artist, Steven Dufala.

Limited to only 25 audience participants nightly, this wildly inventive exploration of the possibilities of live theater and the magic of cinema explores what connects us, and is broadcast live and online from a small room in a village in South America.

Phillips and Dufala have transformed Phillips’ studio into a magical motel room where time stops, mysterious and illuminating stories emerge from across the globe and analog objects take on their own potent meaning. New York City magician Steve Cuiffo has invented a series of interactive magic and illusions for this wholly unique evening of adventurous theatre about lost souls of the past, our new global reality and the possibilities for the future.

*Please Note: You will need to have a deck of cards handy for Zoo Motel
