What is a community-based, alternative-venue performance troupe like Fluid Movement to do when the pools are closed and water ballet, unwelcome? Get thirty people to strap on their skates and take over the Hamden Rec. Center! Of course!

Welcome the return of FLUID MOVEMENT’s occasional Roller Skating Ballet! And this year it’s called EASY ROLLER! A COURTROOM DRAMA on WHEELS. Imagine a town where roller-skating is a crime, sunny days in the park depressingly sedentary, and Kevin Bacon is filing for copyright infringement! It takes a special kind of person to overcome the condescending ways of an uptight judge in Intercourse PA, but DARCY DUTTLEHOFFER and her brand of ROLLER LOVE are more than up to the task. With a little help from the AMISH and her side-parted ponytail, she gets a backward town to take a good look at themselves and MAKE THAT CHANGE… on WHEELS!

SEE HOT, STEAMY JUSTICE ladled out…on WHEELS! WITNESS a cautionary PSYCHEDELIC FREAKOUT…on WHEELS! THRILL to the spectacle of 30 PEOPLE DOING THE ELECTRIC SLIDE…on WHEELS! RELIVE YOUR ADOLESCENT RINK DREAMS …on WHEELS! HOW COULD YOU SHUN THAT?

Where? Hampden’s Roosevelt Recreation Center, 1221W, 36th St, Baltimore, MD
When? Saturday, March 14th at 7 and 9 PM, and Sunday, March 15th at 7 PM.
Doors open half an hour before each show.
Tickets available at www.brownpapertickets.com and at the door.
How much? $10! That’s a lotta roll for a little dough!
