War of the Worlds

Synetic Theater
1800 S Bell Street
Arlington, Virginia 22202

In a world premiere, Synetic Theater brings its stunning and immersive style to H.G. Wells’ renowned novel of devastation and faith in the midst of catastrophe. This multimedia fusion of acrobatics, music, and movement makes us question who we are and what is truly worth fighting for. The ultimate story of otherness, War of the Worlds will enter the Synetic canon in 2023 with a world-premiere production helmed by Paata Tsikurshvili. H.G. Wells’ science fiction story shocked late-19th century readers with its otherworldly depiction of extraterrestrials invading Earth, and has since inspired countless re-envisionings, including Orson Welles’ sensational radio broadcast in 1938 and Steven Spielberg’s film of the same name. In this latest iteration, War of the Worlds leaps off the page and onto the stage through Synetic’s wordless Physical Theater style and its signature immersive, multimedia production design.
