I wouldn’t have it believed myself…but I read it on the on the CAN site…Dig this! Synchronized Swimming gets into the community engagement/art game in Baltimore…No, I’m not kidding. Yes, I said “syn-chro-nized swim-ing.”
Ok, here’s the deal…Fluid Movement, a collective that describes themselves as ..” a Baltimore-based performance art group that juxtaposes complex subject matter with delightful and unexpected mediums…and creates art that is accessible, and often educational, for audiences of all ages and backgrounds.” Don’t you just want to hug these guys. And now the meat of the mission… which you’ve got to appreciate if you’re an urbanite like myself…”Our performances are created for urban spaces, in Baltimore and beyond. We encourage a sincere understanding and appreciation for city life and city dwellers through our work.” I tell you…that kind of mission statement makes the heart sing! And they do this EVERY YEAR and feature 68 performers! Oh, to be in Baltimore in summer (Sigh)
You know I just can’t help thinking these guys would be great at Free First Saturday – the Walker’s monthly family jamboree. Can’t you just imagine them doing their thing in the Spoonbridge and Cherry pond. (I’m going to keep that thought and use it to ease Insomnia) Tell me you don’t dig that idea… it’s divine…Spoonridge and Swimming. Enough already Reggie – you genius you!
