About Second Body

Synetic Theater is thrilled to present the immersive theatrical experience "Second Body" as a complement to their current production of "Richard III" on select dates May 30 through June 16.

How much of a relationship depends on what your senses tell you? What happens when your best friend’s words come out of a stranger’s body, in a stranger’s voice? Challenge your perceptions of communication and identity through this immersive blend of theater and technology.

Second Body is a thrilling new experimental mode of communication that allows people to connect through the use of live human avatars, as opposed to the virtual avatars we use on social media. The event will include an introduction and a live demo with two audience volunteers who will speak to each other through professional actors or “Second Bodies.”

The “Second Bodies” will be played by actors from the company, including Richard III himself, Alex Mills.

Performances Thursdays through Saturday will occur prior to "Richard III" at 6:15pm and after "Richard III" at 10pm. Performances on Sundays will occur prior to "Richard III" at 12:15pm and after "Richard III" at 4pm.
