Wordless As You Like It Told Through Music and Movement

News   Wordless As You Like It Told Through Music and Movement Arlington's Synetic Theatre, dedicated to high-energy physical theatre, presents an adaptation of the Shakespeare classic As You Like It, told with visual imagery, original music, movement and no dialogue.

In Synetic's contemporary adaptation of As You Like It, Rosalind is banished from "the bleak streets of a rusted urban wasteland."
