Synetic Annual Fund 2019-20
Provide general support for our 2019/20 season by donating today!
The COVID-19 crisis has had a devastating impact on many industries, with the arts being one of the hardest hit fields. Despite the financial blow, giving up has never been an option for Synetic. Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili started this company in 2001 as immigrants from Georgia, having fled violence and oppression in their homeland. Against the odds, they created one of the preeminent physical theater companies in the nation, and trained hundreds of artists in their unique style. Perseverance is in our DNA.
What started as a dream of two is now an institution that employs 19 full- and part-time staff members, over 200 artists and technicians, and reaches more than 30,000 adults and students every year through its programming.
With your support, we can forge ahead to create another two decades' worth of cutting-edge theatrical experiences. You can help us reach our goal and emerge stronger than ever before by donating today.
Synetic Serves: AFAC
Synetic Theater is committed to investing in our community during these unprecedented times. Our name is derived from the words "synthesis", meaning the combination of distinct elements to form a whole, and "kinetic" meaning the creation of motion. Our core belief is that words are meaningless without action.
We are taking action by partnering with the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC). AFAC obtains and distributes groceries, directly and free of charge, to people living in Arlington, VA, who cannot afford to purchase enough food to meet their basic needs. More than 31,500 Arlingtonians describe themselves as food insecure, and AFAC serves over 2400 local families a week!
All funds raised in this campaign will be split equally between Synetic Theater and AFAC. There are many needs to be met right now, and we are all hungry for justice and change. We hope that by synthesizing our goals of feeding physical and artistic hunger in our midst, we can fuel our community for the work ahead.
