When Forklift meets Watershed
Thursday, October 20, 2022 by Tai Moses
The first performance in a multiyear collaboration between Forklift Danceworks and the Watershed Protection Department will feature 25 Watershed employees, 15 vehicles – including a forklift – and a live musical score by Austin composer Graham Reynolds. The performance, titled The Way of Water: Waller Creek, “will explore the way water moves through Downtown Austin, and what it means for our community,” according to the press release. Watershed assistant director Ramesh Swaminathan said,“It’s going to be unbelievable to see some of the things that Watershed Protection does on a day-to-day basis in the light of an artistic rendition. Our field crews make a dump truck look beautiful and Forklift Danceworks is going to shine a light on the beauty inherent in the work of Watershed Protection.” Tickets are free with reservations. Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 18 & 19 at 7 p.m. & 9 p.m. at the Waller Creek Tunnel Inlet Facility at Waterloo Greenway.
