This was really good. It's not one of my favorite of Shakespeare's works, but I enjoyed it. Think it might be better without words. The performer who portrayed Puck moved in ways I didn't think a human body could.

Quotes & Highlights

“[Director Paata] Tsikurishvili balances slapstick and lyricism to make poetry. Don’t for a minute think of this as ‘silent’ Shakespeare.” —The Washington Post
“Delightfully mischievous … retains the romance and magic of Shakespeare’s comedy.” —The Washington Times
“Astonishing.” —Washington City Paper

Description

Based on the play by William Shakespeare

Directed by Paata Tsikurishvili

Choreographed by Irina Tsikurishvili

Adaptation and fight choreography  by Ben Cunis

Set and costume design by Anastasia R. Simes

Synetic brings this smash hit to Rosslyn Spectrum after its sold-out run at the Kennedy Center. Don’t miss your chance to see this fantastical, darkly playful game of love, mistaken identity, and the supernatural. Synetic’s fourth installment of its “Silent Shakespeare” series (following wordless adaptations of Hamlet, Macbeth, and Romeo and Juliet) brings this time-honored favorite to new life with signature bravado and dramatic physicality.
