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 physical 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.
SYNthesis: the coming together of distinct elements to form a whole KinETIC: pertaining to or imparting motion, active, dynamic SYNETIC: a dynamic synthesis of the arts
Synetic Theater emerged from the creative vision of founders Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili, Georgian artists who moved to the United states in the 1990s. Trained in innovative dance, theater and film, the Tsikurishvilis combined traditions of the Caucuses with distinct American styles to tell classical stories in a unique way. Synetic Theater made its artistic debut in 2002 with a wordless Hamlet (Hamlet...the rest is silence)—quickly establishing itself as a dazzling and innovative physical theater company and earning three 2003 Helen Hayes Awards for Outstanding Resident Play, Outstanding Choreography and Outstanding Director.
