Located in the heart of Crystal City, Synetic Theater is Washington DC’s premier physical theater company.  Founded in 2001 by the husband and wife team of Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili, Synetic seeks to advance and enrich the theater arts in the Nation’s Capital through its unique performance style, which fuses the classical elements of drama, movement, dance, mime, and music into a distinct form of non-realistic theater. This form is simultaneously avantgarde and accessible, with a broad appeal to a wide, culturally diverse, and cross-generational audience. "Synetic has received a total of 94 Helen Hayes Award Nominations and 21 Helen Hayes Awards for its acclaimed performances."
