Synetic Theater’s Founding Artistic Director Paat Tsikurishvili goes underground to give you his interpretation of Franz Kafka’s The Trial.
Picture this: A 30-year-old man going about his day, when suddenly without cause or warning, he is arrested while at work. Two unidentified agents from an unknown agency arrest this man for an unspecified crime. While this story might sound as if it had been ripped from the headlines, it is from Franz Kafka’s 1914/15 The Trial. Synetic Theater will explore the struggles of “K” and his encounters with the invisible Law and the untouchable Court.
This production is recommended for ages 14+ for mature content.
