The genius of Shakespeare comes across loud and clear -- without a single spoken line -- in a new wordless production of As You Like It. Equally obvious is the talent and vigor of the production's staging company, Synetic Theater, which first arrived on the scene with the widely praised wordless Hamlet in 2002. Now back with their 12th silent adaptation, the company once again tells one of Shakespeare's finest tales completely through movement, setting their version of As You Like It on the bleak streets of a rusted urban wasteland. Their grim exile is transformed once Rosalind encounters the lovelorn Orlando, who at first fails to recognize the object of his affections in disguise. Synetic's purely physical interpretation of the classic promises to be a thought-provoking exploration of the nature of traditional gender roles, societal class and love with unforgettable visual imagery and original music.
