Sinergismo is a multi-disciplinary collaborative performance art ensemble comprised of professional dancers, visual artists, poets, and musicians on a mission to make innovative and inspiring art.
The ensemble consistently uses humor, absurdity, and playfulness to explore various themes and ideas brought forth by group members. The group prides itself on its use of sophisticated humor and intentional contradictions. All components of our projects/performances use a certain amount of self-sufficiency in all aspects including concept, choreography, set, sounds, props, costumes, etc.
Sinergismo was founded in 2002 by sculptor Jon Rajkovich and dancers Gretchen Jax and Jacki McCarthy while they were students at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC. Over the last fourteen years, Sinergismo has produced more than 25 performance pieces and has grown to include over a dozen working artists.
Sinergismo’s “Gismodyssey: An Odd-A-See” is inspired by dazzle camouflage, a WWI naval tactic where ships were painted not to hide from the enemy, but to disorient and confuse them. A legendary story line is brought to life through choreographed dance, original sound score, and spoken word while exploring how abstract, black and white, two-dimensional paintings on panel can be used as costume and/or shield for the characters. One innocent mistake sends the lives of many into a state of chaos and conflict as outsiders try to take advantage of their new vulnerability.
