The Way of Water

A Global Project Exploring Water and the Work of the People Who Steward It

Launching in 2022

The Way of Water is a multi-year performance project that expands civic participation and conversation through dance. The project explores the histories, challenges, and futures of water as a shared natural resource. Forklift Danceworks brings its community-based practice to partnerships with essential civic workers, artists and local residents in Austin, Miami, Venice, Italy and beyond. These stories reveal the way water moves.

The project begins in 2022, with a premiere performance featuring the City of Austin Watershed Protection Department. Presented in partnership with Waterloo Greenway, live original music and lighting design will accompany the movement and stories of Austin’s Watershed Protection employees. Save the date for November 10-12, 2022 and sign up for our email list to be the first to learn performance details and how to secure your tickets!
