Fusing the classical elements of drama, movement, dance, mime, text, and music into a distinct form of non-realistic drama, Synetic Theater has taken Washington audiences by storm. At once avant-garde and accessible, its extraordinary productions have also left critics breathless: "A fast-moving, visually stunning work, unlike anything else being done on local stages," declared the Washington Examiner; and “if you've never experienced the hyper-theatrical dance moves and dramatics of the astonishing Synetic Theater, may I suggest that now would be a very good time to start?" asked the Washington Post. Synetic brings new life to classical works (from Shakespeare to Dante to Poe) in a style that is at once innovative, accessible, and fresh. In addition to its adult repertoire, Synetic offers a Family Series (puppetry, mime, and music are all hits with children), and drama and visual arts classes along with outreach programs for underserved kids. Recipient of 24 Helen Hayes Awards and 92 nominations since its inception, Synetic is truly a theater on the move. Partners are welcome!
