Jekyll & Hyde

Performance Dates
Synetic Theater presents "Jekyll and Hyde" - a bold, steampunked and wordless retelling of Robert Louis Stevenson’s literary classic. Synthesizing sound, music and dance with live theater and cinema, Synetic creates a nightmarish drama exploring the horror, mystery, science and madness of Stevenson’s cautionary tale about good and evil. Torn between opposing levels of society and conflicting impulses, the ambitious Dr. Jekyll seeks to understand the origin and nature of the human soul, and, in the process, better all of humanity. Attempting to filter all evil from his own psyche, he rapidly loses control and transforms into the elegant, charming, and hideously psychopathic Mr. Hyde. The result is a terrible and shocking liberation of Jekyll’s darker side, with tragic consequences.
