The premier physical movement-focused theater in the Mid-Atlantic, Synetic Theater has grown from street performances to awards and acclaim, performing 5 major productions each season in its Arlington theater. Treasured for wild and expansive stagings of classical literary works and folktales (from Shakespeare to Dante to Kafka), its highly athletic company creates unforgettable, visceral experiences for audiences. Year-round, Synetic offers classes and camps in its unique movement style — a mix of mime, dance, acrobatics, theatrical movement, and traditional acting — along with Pre-Teen and Teen Companies for promising young performers. Each school year, Synetic performs dozens of traveling shows and produces more than 250 workshops and residencies, bringing high-quality, high-voltage theater to students of diverse needs and abilities. Recipient of 154 nominations and 39 Helen Hayes Awards since its inception, Synetic is truly a theater on the move.
