Synchronised was a ground-breaking pool-based exploration of creativity in water, choreogrpahed by Balbir Singh. Braunarts created and produced two films to capture Synchronised; one, a behind the scenes look at the creative processes and the second a short film of the performance that took place at Ponds Forge swimming pool in July 2012.
Synchronised explores what is involved in choreography and training for synchronised swimmers, and what happens to classical Indian and contemporary-trained dancers working in water.
The project combines Balbir Singh's interest in synthesising contemporary and Kathak dance with synchronised swimming, working with professional dancers, elite level synchronised swimmers and the general public.
