Synetic Opens 18/19 Season With SLEEPY HOLLOW
Synetic Theater's adaptation of Sleepy Hollow pulls together all the elements that made Synetic famous: Gothic horror, iconic characters and imagery, an emphasis on surreal, wordless storytelling that transcends spoken language and makes our productions something akin to live-action dreams (or nightmares, depending on the story). This one's got everything from our "greatest hits" and is also our first wholly American story-both written and set in the US. It's a story everyone knows-woven into our national soul, so to speak-but we're turning the tale on its head too, telling it from a different perspective than is usually done. By doing this, we're exploring and deconstructing the ideas of legend and myth, by showing that what we think we know about them-and about ourselves-is often far from the truth of what really happened.
