DC’s performance art explosion is taking it to the pool for SynchroSwim 2015, WPA’s synchronized swimming performance art competition. Typically, synchronized swimming demands advanced water skills and requires great strength, endurance, flexibility, grace, artistry, and precise timing, as well as exceptional breath control. At WPA’s SynchroSwim, you’ll just need creativity and enthusiasm. Past performances have included a biting critique of BP’s role in the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, a battle between pollution and Captain Planet’s Planeteers, a patriotic excerpt from Fluid Movement’s Star Spangled Swimmer, and even a performance by a real live Synchronized Swimming team.

This year’s performances will be judged by: Dr. Melissa Chiu, Director of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden; Lauren Landau, Host of Art Beat on WAMU; and Doug Yeuell, Director of Atlas Performing Arts Center.

Submissions will only be accepted online via their online submission form here. Deadline for submissions is July 19, 2015. For more information visit https://www.wpadc.org/content/call-entrysynchroswim-2015.

Questions can be directed to Samantha May, Program Director at [email protected]
