HydroPrismEchoChamber: Fluid Movement at Light City

image

We’re excited about the premier of ‪#‎HydroPrismEcho‬[Chamber], a 15-minute dance piece at Light City Baltimore’s “Light Up the Night! Stage” outside the Harbor Amphitheater, near the corner of Light and Pratt Streets.

Fluid Movement will perform on Tuesday March 29th at 7:30, 8:30, and 10:30 pm and Saturday April 2 at 8:00 and 10:00 pm.

This is a performance of epic proportions! HydroPrismEcho[Chamber] celebrates McKeldin Fountain, soon to be a part of Baltimore’s past. McKeldin witnessed the history unfolding around it for 33 years. Our piece celebrates the life and times of McKeldin Fountain—specifically as it relates to the notion of work—through period music, costumes, and dance. Performers in the amphitheater—within sight of McKeldin Square—will pay homage to the Brutalist sculpture and the people who pass by daily on their way to and from work.

This is a performance of historic significance! HydroPrismEcho[Chamber] is the very first, all-female-identified cast. (A few men are holding props).

We are Fluid Movement, and so are you!

As part of HydroPrismEcho[Chamber], we asked the audience to shine their Fluid Movement flashlights along with our dancers. Look for yourselves in these videos, being part of a Fluid Movement production!

Fluid Movement Thanks You For A Spectacular 2015 Performance Season!


This year’s roller show and water ballet brought both sellout audiences and critical acclaim. You like us, you really like us!

On March 21-22 2015, Fluid Movement held its 8th Roller Show, “That’s BaltAmoré: A Fairy Tale on Wheels”, in a pop up theater space on Charles Street in Station North. The show was an overwhelming success, with five sellout shows in two days for a total audience of well over 600. This also marked Fluid Movement’s first partnership with the 29th Street Community Center Jump 4 Joy program, bringing 30 children to 2 shows for a prelude performance. See some great show press here: TheaterBloom.

On July 25-26 and August 1-2 2015, Fluid Movement held its 14th annual water ballet, “Goldblum: The Water Ballet,” and the show shattered all previous FM records. Not only was the show put on with our biggest cast (100 participants), every single show made audience records, with a total audience of almost 3500 over the entire run. City Paper named Fluid Movement “Best Water Ballet” in its Best of Baltimore 2015 special issue, marking the first time Fluid Movement has ever won a “Best of” award. Here’s more great show press:  http://www.whatweekly.com/2015/08/04/goldblum-water-ballet.

Why is Mike Rowe wearing a Speedo and… sequins?

Mike joins Fluid Movement on "Somebody's Gotta Do It,” Thursday May 7 at 9 pm on CNN

In his CNN Original Series, “Somebody’s Gotta Do It,” Mike Rowe introduces his viewers to people who perform unique jobs. Fluid Movement isn’t exactly a job, but we think we’re unique, especially when Mike dons a bathing suit and sequined cap and works through a scene from “Star Spangled Swimmer” with the cast of last summer’s smash hit water ballet.

See the results here.

Because Fluid Movement wants to take you to summer school with “Star-Spangled Swimmer!: A War of 1812 Water Ballet.” Using our patented immersive technique, we will transport you back to a time when the colonies were newborns, Baltimore had dozens of independent newspapers, and it rained militiamen.
