“It was a regular day in fairyland, when the mermaids dressed in all their finery, ruby red tails and emerald green scales and were captured diving into the milky white depths of their jungle bath.“

It was a regular day in fairyland, when the mermaids dressed in all their finery, ruby red tails and emerald green scales and were captured diving into the milky white depths of their jungle bath.
Their surreal bathroom, that feels like it came out of a young girl’s dream, was full of color, fantasy, flowers and greenery. This jungle habitat housed the luxury tub where fantastical creatures bathe and frolic like queens, without a care in the world.
The scene was set on multi-layered plastic wrap that covered the bathtub, giving it a utopic, endless sense of no boundaries. The flowers and the leave, created an atmosphere that was a cross between a mermaid world on the bottom of the ocean and Poison Ivy’s Lab.
The photo shoot for the Crystal Waters hotel on the island of Lefkada was one of the happiest moments that we spent working on projects for the Naiads. It lasted three days and each day was special in its own way.
The Crystal Waters hotel is outstanding, with large light-blue pools , state of the art facilities with an overall elegant aesthetic of simplicity and minimalism, echoing exactly Costas Spathis perspective and artistic expression. The hotel owners were kind, hospitable and generously, gave us carte blanche to innovate and create in their pools. The curved form of the pools, the total white seamless bottom, the perfectly shaped and placed sunbeds and Lefkada’s amazing sun, were the exotic canvas on when we were able to express our art..
It was our third collaboration, with Costas, but we believe it was the most significant one. We filled a pool with colorful inflatable toys of every kind and shape, fruit, leaves, ice cream, doughnuts, unicorns etz. and we used them to create beautiful art photography. But, our most powerful moment was when we tried to re-invent body forms and silhouettes.
We turned one pool completely milky white, so the only part of the body that was visible was anything above the surface. Because of the lack of transparency, the rest of the body under the surface felt like it had sunk into a white abyss. As the bodies moved, the silhouette formed and reformed new shapes. The multiplication of those shapes made thousands of breathtaking, beautiful possibilities of new forms.
Repetition, fluid forms and the innovating synthesis of sun-kissed brown bodies gave us a spectacular result.
Our work there got worldwide recognition. Some of the photographs went viral and were reposted by leader in contemporary art field.
Without realizing at the moment, the first step towards what we call “minimal synchro” had been taken.
We absolutely love participating in corporate events and this in particular is so far, one of our favorites and by hart, one we will never forget.
“In corporates events, especially the multicultural ones, you will find different kind of people, from different nations, with different culture and beliefs, but that special day, all of them are on their bests and all of them have the same goal: to enjoy that party as much as possible. People is free, happy, celebrating and is our duty to make them feel more excitement and make sure that they too, will not forget that night.”
When Crayon Entertainment, requested us to participate at the two days CEO Meet of Indorama Ventures in firm’s birth town, Bangkok, was one of our happiest days. We have been performed abroad before but not that far away from Greece and been called from those places meant a lot to us.
Crayon team informed us that in Bangkok haven’t performed again a synchronised swimming show and that was something like an additional touch to our happiness and excitement. Therefor we wanted to present a magnificent performance that would captivate the audience.
The event held on Bangkok’s five-star hotel Anantaria Siam. The venue itself was absolutely stunning, with a large pool, surrounded by palm trees, a stage at the side and a big dinning space.setting up some light effects in magenta and cyan colors Crayon created a dreamy atmosphere and made the perfect setup forour performance. Under the stary night and all those soft colors, a little bit after the guests arrived, our two mermaids appeared. They were seating at the shore moving harmonically and seducing everyone who was close by. After a while, when the music started and the lights went darker the Naiad, wearing an astonishing costume make her entrance as she walks closely among the audience. Naiad and mermaids now are among the guests performing both on land and finally in the water dazzling the guests and travelling them into an unreal world for as long the performance last.
In continuation of that wonderful night and little bit before the dinner began was the perfect moment for our second performance.While the guests were walking around talking to each other or simply enjoying the night, suddenly something like a poem would echoes to their ears. A poem that told them that they are part of their dreams and the next day, when they wake up, they will realize that what they felt was as surreal as being in a dream. A silver girl on a silver gown was now walking among them blowing silver star dust while another girl on another gown crossing the audience from the other side absorbing the glances of the audience and challenging them to follow. Simultaneal three swimmers appeared seating motionlessin the water on glitter tubes…
We are so grateful we ‘ve been part of this event. The hole event was so well planed that allowed us also to enjoy what we did. Both the client and the organizers were so kind and treat us with the best way.
