At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we created the Synetic Strong campaign to keep Synetic operational during the phased quarantine. Thanks to incredible donor support, we have raised over $200,000 dollars. We need your help to raise the last $75,000 before the end of our fiscal year on August 31 to complete the campaign and begin our 20th Anniversary Season strong.
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.
We can’t wait to reopen our doors with our next production as soon as this crisis is over. After all, art makes life worth living. We know that everyone has been affected socially and financially, but with your support of Synetic Strong, we will keep the flame alive through this unprecedented world event.
