DC’s performance art explosion is taking to the pool with SynchroSwim 2013, the third iteration of WPA’s synchronized swimming performance art competition! Typically, synchronized swimming demands advanced water skills and requires great strength, endurance, flexibility, grace, artistry, and precise timing, as well as exceptional breath control. At WPA’s SynchroSwim, we celebrate creativity and enthusiasm. Past performances have included a biting critique of BP’s role in the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, a celebration of the music of Van Halen, an excerpt from Fluid Movement’s Jason and the Aquanauts: 20,000 Legs Over The Sea, and even a performance by a real live Synchronized Swimming team. WPA is pleased to welcome Arvind Manocha, President and CEO of Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts; Scott Simon, Peabody Award-winning host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday, who once interviewed Esther Williams; and Molly Smith, Artistic Director of Arena Stage as this year’s judges. The judges will rank the teams on a scale of 1 to 10 in two categories: Execution (the skill and coherence of their performance) and Visual Spectacle (the outrageousness of the team’s costumes and performance). Prizes are awarded in these two categories, as well as for crowd favorite, which is decided by applause. - See more at:

DC Door's

DC United Stadium/ Reeves Center!!

So excited that this is finally happening!  It has been in talks since even before the Nat's stadium was built or when they even came to town!

Here are glimpse of what will soon occupy South-West DC and let's not forget the undesirable Reeves Center built in the 80's to revitalize the U Street corridor does nothing for the area anymore as it has become a hot spot for clubs/bars and restaurants and condos popping up!  So Long Reeves Center.  

It's a Win, Win situation!

Love wins,



In the light of the term ‘underground’ ubiquitously flying across the dance universe these days, luckily there are artists that still capture the very essence of the notion in their dogged pursuit of quality and individuality before conformity, whilst simultaneously paying homage to past times. Take a bow, Anthea.

Once a fixture of London’s Flying Records and Phonica Records, where she also did the bookings for their monthly parties at the infamous, sadly defunct T-Bar, the now Berlin based artist has been acquiring her cutting edge tastemaker ears for the better part of 15 years, as an integrated cog in the wheel of London’s electronic music scene.

Honing a sound that meanders between funk-fuelled house and techno, with a flair for intrinsically deep and boisterous basslines where the groove is key, she deftly showcases an understanding of vintage building blocks, and continues to entertain crowds at Fabric in London, Watergate in Berlin, Harry Klein in Munich, Underground in Ibiza, and Gipsy in Moscow to name a select few.

On the production side of things, it is evident that Anthea allows for the heartbeat of her new hometown to permeate her productions. She currently counts releases on labels including Freak ‘n Chic, Phonica, All Inn, One Records, Desolat, air london and Brouqade to her name, along with working with the likes of Alex Celler, Guti, Fosky, Alex Picone, Fernando Costantini & Lumieux, not to mention Werner Niedermeier with whom she formed JC Freaks, along with fellow Berliner and label-partner in crime, Dana Ruh. 

As One third behind the young and uprising Brouqade Records, alongside Dana Ruh and Ann M Cazal, with a finger on the pulse Anthea’s inherently sharp A&R talent has resulted in a string of fresh and exciting new talent seeing the light of day, bringing to the fore the artists of tomorrow, with label showcases high in demand.

Currently busy planning not only her label’s showcases – which promises a couple of high-profile appearances in the near future – further Anthea releases on Low Pitch, Oasi Lab and of course Brouqade are all in in the pipeline.
