The Clams describe themselves as “Melb’s most Clamtastic, least professional, water ballet squad”. Last year, their show Crimson Tide – a water ballet about de-stigmatising the conversation around periods – sold out on debut, before returning by popular demand for Melbourne Fringe.
The Clams are back with Better Wetter, the group's first performance since Crimson Tide. This one's all about female sex: "with each other, with another, with themselves, but always with enthusiastic clamsent" the group says.
Choreographed by Holly Durant and Gabi Barton, there's no nudity or smut, so kids are welcome. A percentage of profits goes to Undercurrent Victoria, a violence prevention and justice education project.
Better Wetter is so nice they'll be performing it twice on Saturday February 24, with sessions at 3pm and 6pm. Poolside beats come courtesy of DJ Whiskey Houston and pop-disco band Sugar Fed Leopards between the performances, starting from 2.30pm.
Better Wetter is on at Northcote Aquatic & Recreation Centre on Saturday February 24. Tickets cost $15–$30. More information and tickets here.
