About Streamed Performance: Richard 3.0
Though their live performances in Arlington, VA were canceled as part of the community's efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, Synetic Theater is thrilled to offer audiences the chance to experience their shows from home through this video recorded performance from their popular 2019 production of "Richard 3.0." The theater is offering tickets to their streamed performance in a "Pay What You Can" style so that you can choose your price based on what you can afford and how many people will be watching with you. Your ticket purchase goes directly back to supporting the theater as they plan for the future.
As our physical and cyber worlds become more entwined – our lives as a whole more automated and impersonal – do we lose connection and empathy? What happens when technology obscures our own humanity and the humanity of those around us?
Highlighting the terrifying extremes made possible through the abuse of modern technology, the 14th installment in Paata Tsikurishvili’s Wordless Shakespeare Series explores King Richard III’s Machiavellian rise to power in a movement-driven and action-packed display of stunning physicality and powerful visuals.
