Fluid Movement on Maryland Morning!
Listen to our very own Val and Liz right here!
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.

Fluid Movement’s Roller Skating Extravaganza
It’s a charming fractured fairytale on roller skates. To ensure pleasantness in the Land of Pleasant Living, a petulant princess protagonist must obey her father’s wishes and find a suitable mate. After a magical makeover, she is forced to choose from a motley cast of doltish dudes and lax bros. Will she find true love in time to save the kingdom? Is there a Prince for her, or… something more?
Intrigue! Fairies! Glitter! Song! Dance! Wheels!
All of this awaits you in the Charming Kingdom of BaltAmoré.
This year, the “Hound Dog Crew” uses all their brain power to crack the case of the missing bowling trophy. This motley crew tirelessly watches their favorite TV programs in order to piece together the clues! Join us Monday January 6th at Atomic Books, in Hampden, from 6 to 8 p.m. to sign up for this fabulous show!!

What is a community-based, alternative-venue performance troupe like Fluid Movement to do when the pools are closed, and water ballet, unwelcome?
Get sixty people to strap on their skates and take over the Hamden Rec. Center! Of course!
It is the return of FLUID MOVEMENT’s annual Roller Skating Ballet! And this year it’s called 3001: A Baltimore Odyssey!
The year is 3001, the place is Baltimore- sort of. As a futuristic underwater city in a bubble, Baltimore has gone through some dramatic changes while maintaining that unmistakable Baltimore charm. Witness the adventure as two hapless Baltimore City sanitation employees in an attitude ridden submarine awaken a surly, slumbering Cyclops who, with the help of some gold medal clones, send the workers into the uncharted waters of the Washington DC bubble. Will they ever make it home again?
