‘Titus Andronicus’ at Synetic

-

A highly satisfying distillati­on of Shakespear­e — one of the most successful in Synetic Theater’s extensive history of boiling down the plays to seductive movement, as choreograp­hed by director Paata Tsikurishv­ili’s wife, Irina. “Titus Andronicus,” a revenge tragedy that happens also to be the goriest in the canon, is the 13th work of Shakespear­e that Synetic has staged in its wordless series. And in Emily Whitworth’s lucid adaptation, you can see how the company’s long experience with the style has helped it build in clarity and character richness. Through Sunday at Synetic Theater. — P.M.
