Synetic’s production of The Tempest tempts the fates in a swimmingly brilliant piece of theater and choreography.

The athleticism of the actors as they splash through Prospero’s stormy, shipwrecked world confounds and entertains. If you’re in DC, don’t miss this theatrical adventure in Synetic’s Silent Shakespeare series. It’s liquid gold.
