If you love Cirque du Soleil and you love the theater, you're going to love the Synetic Theater. They have an amazing physical interpretation that's a mix of mime, dance, and gymnastics, with a healthy amount of sex appeal thrown in. One of their specialties is doing silent versions of Shakespeare shows; they've done Hamlet and MacBeth, now they're tackling Romeo and Juliet. They've have received a lot of critical acclaim, including several Helen Hayes awards.

I love their work; I've been a season ticket subscriber for the last 2 seasons.

From their web site at www.synetictheater.org:
" Synetic Theater seeks to advance and enrich the theater arts through presentation and education in its unique performance style of a synthesis of the arts, fusing the classical elements of drama, movement, dance, mime, and music into a distinct form of non-realistic theater. As Synetic Theater begins to develop a bridge between the DC and New York theater scenes, the company also seeks to expand its international presence. The theatrical style of Synetic Theater lends itself beautifully to cross-cultural performances, and the company plans to share their work and vision with people from around the world.

Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili, artistic director and resident choreographer, respectively, have garnered international, critical, and audience acclaim for their award-winning productions. Mr. Tsikurishvili has received six Helen-Hayes-Award nominations and two awards (Best Director and Best Resident Play for Hamlet?the Rest is Silence). Mrs. Tsikurishvili has received seven nominations for Best Choreography and won the award three times (The Idiot, Faust, and Hamlet?the rest is silence)."

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
