Part of the 2007 Shakespeare in Washington festival
Synetic’s silent Hamlet won three Helen Hayes awards and became something of a calling card for the company. Now Synetic offers a take on yet another great Shakespearean tragedy, Macbeth—the dark, brooding tale of a husband and wife whose ambition and lust for power sends them into an unescapable swirl of murder, madness and self-destruction. Synetic’s signature blend of dance, movement and music will cast new light on the universal struggles and themes of one of Shakespeare’s most complex works, told through the art of silence.
Shakespeare in Washington Festival
The Shakespeare in Washington Festival is a celebration of William Shakespeare’s influence on great culture and entertainment. For more than 400 years, Shakespeare’s plays and poetry have resonated in the world’s consciousness. His works have inspired classic ballets, operas, and symphonic suites and been transformed through the lens of modern themes and settings. From film and Broadway musicals to fashion and the visual arts, his imprint can be found everywhere. Now, Washington will revel in the genius of Shakespeare through more than 100 magnificent presentations by more than 60 arts organizations.
