Scaled online adelaide wetsounds ad
Dive in!! and immerse yourself in an otherworldly sound experience at the swimming pool! Moving in and out of the water, the water surface becomes a threshold between two different sound worlds and two entirely different listening experiences.
Underwater, the sound is intimate and incredibly detailed. Look below and you will see sub-aqueous performances in the depths of sound and imagination, as the bottom of the pool becomes a stage for exploration.
Having toured swimming pools in Europe this is a rare opportunity to catch Wet Sounds at its only Australian shows.

Music by Joel Cahen

Swimwear a must! Goggles recommended.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "..a sound experience to dive for!" - Channel 4
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "...It's astonishingly immediate, inescapable, and faintly perplexing" - The Guardian   ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “ ... below the water, harmonies can turn haunting.... Here submerged in sound, the audience get to be in control” – BBC Television News   ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ...Swimming in water that carries an audible dimension is immensely pleasurable. Noise surrounds you physically. It is both highly individualising as you are wholly immersed in your own senses without the possibility of communication, and extensive as it carries your awareness out across the expanses of your environment... Exploring sound through a co-ordinated fluid, weightless movement. I suspect that it was rather like being in the womb.” - Mizled Youth

Important information:
Age 8+. Audience must know how to swim. Please arrive at least 15min earlier to change to swimwear.

Think outside the square and into the pool. The perfect space for an immersive underwater show, the Adelaide Aquatic Centre plays host to a unique water-based Fringe event this season. Get your goggles on and your gear off (swimwear on though please) for a truly unique summer experience. Come for a Fringe show, stay for the day! With three pools, water slides, a fitness and therapeutic centre – make the most of it and enjoy a whole day of play! The Adelaide Aquatic Centre is an access-friendly centre – with mobility lifts available for the leisure pool and ramp access to our 50m pool, spa and steam room. And when the tummies start to rumble, you can head to our Café for a delicious bite to eat or pack a lunch and take advantage of our picnic/BBQ areas. Swim, splash, slide and smile – no-one does family leisure time like us!
