Patterson Park Pool – August 3-4

Fluid Movement, a Baltimore-based performing arts group, returns with its 12th annual water ballet and, this time, it’s personal! It’s Moby Dick or The Water Ballet! The story, which draws heavily from Hemingway’s Mellville’s (We have harpooned the author as a result of this gaffe) famous work about Ishmael, a poor sailor, as he joins Captain Ahab on a search wretched white whale is set to water by a group of “sparkly-and-ironic” synchronized swimmers as they hunt and harpoon the antagonist. Will any of them make it to Nantucket alive? You’ll have to experience the splendor of the open sea to find out. You’ll find this all out without leaving the comforts of your favorite Baltimore City Public Pool. Be sure to check this event out, July 27th and 28th at the Druid Hill Park Pool, or August 3rd and 4th at the Patterson Park Pool. Tickets are $10 or $5 for city pool pass holders. Also, the July 27th show is half price! Doors open 30 minute before the show, so make sure you show up early and are prepared for the seaward journey of a lifetime.

    Just an editorial note: Moby Dick was written by Herman Melville, not Hemingway.

      Thank you for catching this. Chris has been harpooned and drug to the watery depths in punishment. Also we’re making him get Queequeg’s tattoos.
