ZOTTO is an immersive and multi-sensory supernatural Japanese folktale and theatrical journey. Audiences explore three generations of Japanese American women and their relationship to Denver’s rich yet sordid history as they encounter yokai and obake (Japanese spirits and demons) and other unexpected characters, discover hidden secrets within forgotten spaces, and engage with interactive elements that ask them to consider the relationship between intention and impact. This project is a collaboration presented by Luster Productions, Theatre Artibus, ALT, Control Group Productions, and Japanese Arts Network. The latter initiative is headed by MGLP alumni Courtney Ozaki.
Performances run from November 18, 2022 through December 11, 2022 at Sakura Square in downtown Denver. Tickets are $45 each and can be purchased here.
