Here is your chance to get up close and personal to and personal to an unconventional and truly memorable spectacle by Aquabatix.
Our Artist Spotlight feature is where we focus on one of our performers, giving you the chance to find out more about the people behind the performances, and offering an insight into the world of entertainment bookings. Here’s our Artist Spotlight on Aquabatix who are Synchronised Swimmers:
Katie Fried from the fantastic synchronised swimmers group Aquabatix, and Adele Carlsen, her fellow director, both have had a long and extensive international career in synchronised swimming. They competed internationally from the age of 11 to 24 in competetions such as the World Championships and Commonwealth Games. They were duet partners for the majority of their swimming careers and still remain great friends today as well as business partners.
Throughout their competitive careers Aquabatix performed at many high profile events, were photographed by Nick Knight, modelled for Alexander McQueen and appeared on many TV shows. Having experienced the positive impact the skill and creativity of synchronise swimming had on such a wide variety of media and entertainment projects, they started to realise the true potential of the wonderfully aesthetic sport of synchronise swimming.
In 2004 they decided to pool their love for synchronised swimming, Adele’s skill for choreography and Katie’s extensive event management experience and their water baby, Aquabatix was born. They both love the buzz of live performance and the reactions of the guests as they watch. They are usually a closely guarded secret so people’s reactions are always of great surprise and excitement.
To someone who wanted to get into their line of work, they would say…
While working in the events industry as performers, Aquabatix loved performing live to Bombay Bicycle Club. But also have had some hard times…
“We did a job in Mexico for a circus and the project was a success but we did not get paid after the project due to the Circus closing down which was very frustrating.”
Their best experience while working for Contraband was when they flew a small team to the Seychelles… “Which was fantastic!” They are always looking at the elite synchronised swimming teams from across the world for inspiration for choreography ideas but also try to think of new and unique tricks.
In the end, what matters is that Aquabatix love what they do. The only thing they could think of changing about the industry is putting swimming pools or tanks in every event menu in the world so they have more venues to perform in!
