Synetic Theater to Bring A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM to Mexico
The feuding fairies and merry mechanicals at Synetic Theater have been invited by Instituto Chihuahuense de La Cultura, headed by Fermin Gutierrez Galindo, to perform at the 10th edition of Festival Internacional. The company's award-winning wordless Shakespeare production will be performed at Teatro De Los Heros in Chihuahua on August 13 at 8 pm and at Teatro Victor Hugo Rascon Banda in Juarez on August 15 at 7 pm.
In this fanciful production, Synetic's A Midsummer Night's Dream incorporates all the traditional aspects of a Shakespeare romantic comedy, including multiple love stories, surprising plot twists, and a wedding. Yet what makes Synetic's production especially unique is the fact that this busy plot is clearly relayed to audiences in complete silence. With Synetic's trademark use of movement and connected theatrical expression A Midsummer Night's Dream, is a magical show that conveys Shakespeare's story to audience members of all languages and nationalities.
