The acclaimed Synetic Theater has stunned and impressed audiences and critics alike with their wordless productions of Shakespeare's works, which include the award-winning Hamlet, Othello, Romeo and Juliet and others. Now an intriguing Twelfth Night, this one set in the 1920s, joins their "Silent Shakespeare" repertoire. Synetic co-founders Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili direct and star in the Bard's beloved comic tale. Twelfth Night tells the tale of fraternal twins Viola and Sebastian, separated in a strange new land. Having survived a shipwreck and believing her brother Sebastian has been lost, Viola falls hopelessly in love with Duke Orsino and disguises herself as a man to enter his world so she can be near him. A mix of comedy, tragedy and biting social commentary, this unique production is not to be missed. Learn More

We enjoyed ourselves at the show, but have come to have quite high expectations for Synetic. The premise was relevant and at times moving, the choreography was good and the performance well executed. However, it lacked any "oh wow" moment that the physical theater of Synetic has always given me in the past (the painting scene from Taming of the Shrew, and love scene from Romeo and Juliet come to mind).
Quotes & Highlights
This brand new, original play from Synetic’s aclaimed director Paata Tsikurishvili and writer Ben Cunis tells the story of a young man whose entrance into military life causes him to re-examine the meaning of home, family, love and honor. Rife with the stunning visuals and remarkably physical style Synetic Theater is known for, this is a wartime thriller, unexpectedly and expertly crafted for stage.
