Arts Focus: Synetic Theater & Gallery Underground Take The Reception on the Road

This column is written and sponsored by Arlington Arts / Arlington Cultural Affairs, a division of Arlington Economic Development.

In a typical office building, two companies can be located just down the hall from one another for years and barely have an inkling about what the other does. But collaborating with partners is a great way for organizations to network and increase visibility.

Synetic Theater and Gallery Underground, two notable cultural organizations based in Arlington’s Crystal City neighborhood, are partnering for a special one-night only performance and reception!

Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili return to the stage together in a one-night only presentation of Pygmalion & Galatea for the First Annual Synetic Theater Celebration.

The performance honors the theater’s Founding Company Member Philip Fletcher and Founding Board Member Ina Milton. The cast includes Tori Bertocci, Irina Kavsadze, Alex Mills and Dallas Tolentino, well-known names to devotees of this Arlington-based company, the winner of 27 Helen Hayes Awards.

The party then literally moves across the street to Gallery Underground, where the post-performance reception will take place amid their current national juried all-media show, Hot/Cool.

The terms “hot” and “cool” can describe color, temperature, popular culture, appearance, personality… or a theater performance. The works on display will explore and interpret these qualities. Also featured, along with new works by Gallery members, are works by painter Anna Schalk.

Taking the reception on the road is a great way to way to introduce loyal theatre goers to another cultural amenity just steps away from Synetic. The event takes place on Tuesday, May 15 with cocktails starting at 6 p.m. and a 7 p.m. curtain.
