The Way of Water is a global arts-based project bringing people together around water challenges. In Austin, Forklift partnered with the Watershed Protection Department and residents of the Onion Creek watershed to present The Way of Water: Onion Creek.

Audience members began with an immersive audio walk and then witnessed a performance on a restored urban floodplain. The dance featured municipal workers and community members who stewarded the watershed. It was directed by Allison Orr and Krissie Marty, with production design by Stephen Pruitt and musical direction by Graham Reynolds, along with commissioned composers Vanessa Burden, Orion Garcia, and DJGL.
