How many secrets can one room hold?

Step into this virtual odyssey that combines interactive live theater, gripping storytelling, cinematic illusions, and magic all in one creative hour of surprises.

Theatre Exile invites you to check into ZOO MOTEL, devised by director, designer, and performer Thaddeus Phillips in 2020 as a quarantined experiment that offers a window into what’s possible for live performance — a world where audiences from around the globe can share a mind-bending adventure in the comfort of their own home.

Broadcast live and online from one room in a South American village, ZOO MOTEL takes you on a journey to Spain, Japan, the Mojave Desert, and other parts of the world alongside fellow motel guests.

One room, endless possibilities. ZOO MOTEL.
