Event description

Description

Wet Sounds joins forces with And What? to transform London's historic Ironmongers Row Baths through sound, light and performance.


Please note:

This event is VERY limited capacity, just 50 places for swimmers per session - book now to avoid dissapointment!

There are Two sessions of SQUELCH -

19:45-20:30 and 20:45-21:30 - SQUELCH includes the full line up below...

For those who dont want to get their toes wet we also have a limited number of spectator seats, where you can watch and listen from the safety of the benches.

DUE TO UNPRECEDENTED DEMAND: we have released a third session - this session DOES NOT include the performances but still features WET SOUNDS trademark abstract electronica, projection and lights. ONLY £12.

Tickets for this special additional session are here: https://wet-sounds-early.eventbrite.co.uk

(please arrive in enough time to change and enter the pool!) - Each session lasts approx 45minutes. Please make sure you book for the desired time...


The water surface becomes a threshold between different worlds and two entirely different experiences. Abstract electronica by Wet Sound's Joel Cahen is coupled by a distinctly queer programme by And What? providing a surreal world of (sub)aquatic sound and performance, both above and below the surface.

Performers include:

Joel Cahen - Wet Sounds founder

SDNA (projections & lights)

J. Aria (providing sound & performance)

Out to Swim (London's very own LGBTQIA+ Synchronised swimming troupe)

Tommaso (Controtionist)

Lasana Shabazz (performance artist)

Julie Atlas Muz (international performance artist and mermaid)

Together they create an unusual and immersive world of sound, visuals and performances including some of the best musicians and performers from the queer-glitterati; taking you on a fluid journey through fear to enlightenment. The pool is open to all, gender and sexuality is irrelevant, so come and dip your toes in our murky shark infested waters.

Wet Sounds has been transforming swimming pool for art events around the world at festivals such as ATP, Red Bull Music Academy Montreal, Helsinki Festival, Insomnia Festival and many more...... this is a not to be missed collaboration. Don't forget your swim suits!
