Star-Spangled Swimmer

Star-Spangled Swimmer

A War of 1812 Water Ballet

Ever wonder what makes Federal Hill so… Federal? Or why the flag at Fort McHenry has 15 stripes? Or what 80 people in the same pool swimming to the 1812 Overture looks like? Good! 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.

July 26 and 27, 2014 at Druid Hill Park and August 2 and 3, 2014 at Patterson Park

Mobtown Murder Mystery!

Mobtown Murder Mystery!

The greatest water ballet thriller in many years!

The world’s first (and perhaps last) live film-noir inspired daytime synchronized swimming extravaganza!!

SHE is GAIL FORCE, a Girl Friday turned Ms. Saturday Night.
HE is SAM HOE, her dead boss’ ex-partner with NOTHING but good intentions.
And THEY gotta get their hands on one very dangerous DINGUS!
What’s a DINGUS, you say?  Well, they don’t know, either.  You’re just gonna have to show up to find out! But who has it?  Is it:

One very large FEZ-HEADED small-time boss with a penchant for perspiration and parlay?
One ETHNIC KINGPIN who’s cornered the cookie racket 30 yards off PIER 6?
Or your guest celebrity host who bears a striking resemblance to MANDELIT DEL BARCO?

Watch the trailer!

Add lots of water, beautiful dames and rugged mugs, and a brace of floaties, and you get the picture.  Baltimore may never be the same after
