Synetic Theater’s mission is to be the premier American physical theater, fusing dynamic art forms — such as text, drama, movement, acrobatics, dance and music — by producing world-class theater for all ages, educating the next generation of artists and physical theater professionals, and promoting this distinct form of theater nationally and internationally through community outreach and touring programs.
Synetic Theater is excited to close its season with the popular, Helen Hayes Award-winning play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Spearheaded by Director Paata Tsikurishvili, Synetic masterfully brings back to audiences their highly lauded rendition of the classic play, utilizing dance, acrobatics, and mime creating a fun and relatable adaptation to Shakespeare’s timeless comedy. The limited four-week remount runs July 15 through August 9, 2015.
In this fanciful production, Synetic’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream incorporates all the traditional aspects of a Shakespeare romantic comedy, including multiple love stories, surprising plot twists, and a wedding. Yet what makes Synetic’s production especially unique is the fact that this busy plot is clearly relayed to audiences in silence. With Synetic’s trademark use of movement and connected theatrical expression A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is beautifully re-imagined and will leave audiences feeling as fantastic as the characters in the summer fantasy world.
