My Instagram Takeover at Synetic Theater

I was invited to takeover Synetic Theater's Instagram account, for our preview of Twelfth Night last week. Here's what happened!

  1. First, I was asked to post the following at my personal account:
  2. Hey friends! I'm taking over the @SyneticTheater Instagram today, for our first preview this evening!

  3. And then it was on!
  4. Good morning!! @awayoflife0 here, ensemble member of #TwelfthNight, and I'm taking OVER today. Just wanted to say hey on my way to work, passing through the @monroestmarket Arts Walk, here in #Brookland/#Edgewood. And I'm looking forward to giving you an #actorslife behind the scenes look of our preview tonight. #Shakespeare #WilliamShakespeare #theatre #theater #choreography #dcarts #dctheatre #dcartists #dctheater #acreativedc

  5. Did you know that our production of #TwelfthNight is inspired by the silent comedy of Keaton and Chaplin? Get a behind-the-scenes look at how me (@awayoflife0), my fellow cast members, and the crew bring this to life on stage, during tonight's preview! #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare

  6. Just a photo from over the weekend in tech for #TwelfthNight, of members of our tech crew at work while I hung out upstage! Wanted to share because while you might catch a glimpse of some of the backstage crew at work during tonight's #ActorLife TAKEOVER, there are others whom the audience will not ever see. But the show couldn't go on without them! #StageCrewLife #acreativedc #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare

  7. Here's another photo from our weekend of tech, of Alex Mills upstage of our movie screen, showing you a view you won't see tonight from me (@awayoflife0) because, well, no phones or cameras should be out on stage, much less out in the audience ;-) #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare

  8. Got to the theater early, and look who I ran into: Ira & @dalcamistic!! Now pardon me while I inhale my dinner before our Fight/Dance call at 6pm. #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #TwelfthNight #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare
  9. From backstage to ON stage, just in time for our pre-show Fight/Dance call at 6pm before the house opens. #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #TwelfthNight #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare
  10. And here's a selfie with just a couple of our awesome understudies. You here for our preview? Take a selfie in the lobby before or after the show and make sure to tag us! #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #TwelfthNight #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre ##WilliamShakespeare

  11. Photo from our Fight/Dance call that just ended, and I can't help but wonder if this is what the world looks like for some of the Pokémon found in our theater!! J/k...kind of. If you are a trainer, and you're here for our preview hold off on trying to catch 'em all until after the show. And if you're NOT here for our preview, then you can catch some of the backstage shenanigans tonight with me, right here! :-D #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #TwelfthNight #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare

  12. Less than 5 minutes to places! Also? Best dressing room squad ever, with @dalcamistic, @scottbrowndc, Shu-nan, & Zana. #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #TwelfthNight #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare

  13. Spoiler alert: someone dies in #TwelfthNight!! Kidding/not kidding. Someone died in the show before it even gets started. Yes this is a shot from on stage, but not from during the show, from our Fight/Dance Call earlier. Enjoying my takeover so far? :-)#acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare

  14. Also, say hi to Ana, our wonderful Wardrobe Manager! We would not look as good as we do on stage (aka clothed) without her, especially with some of the quick changes we've got in this show!! #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare

  15. Creepy mirror selfie backstage. Don't say "bloody Mary" three times!! But seriously, with that first major costume change, we have so little time that many of us have to put on our makeup right behind the scenery because we can't make it to our dressing rooms! #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #TwelfthNight #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare

  16. So...when we're not running around on stage or off and have time to catch our breath before the next entrance, we're here in the green room, watching the show on this monitor. #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #TwelfthNight #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare

  17. It's selfie time again (aka enough time to TAKE a selfie), with my ensemble buddy Shu-nan!! Not going to lie, I feel like one part Newsie and one part mime in this costume. #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #TwelfthNight #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare

  18. Don't let the props fool ya! #TwelfthNight is a show with a lot of heart and a lot of...brain? Hmmm...Zombie Twelfth Night next time... Anyway the show's approaching the finish line and my time with you will be coming to a close, shortly. Hope you've been enjoying so far! #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare

  21. Paata giving us a final round of notes after tonight's preview, telling us what went great along with what could go better. But overall, I know I felt really good about tonight's performance and stoked to bring this show to you all with one of my favorite theatre families, over the next month. #acreativedc #actorlife #choreography #CrystalCity #dcartists #dcarts #dctheater #dctheatre #Shakespeare #theater #theatre #TwelfthNight #vaartists #vaarts #vatheater #vatheatre #WilliamShakespeare
