The Symphonic Body/Water

July 18 & 19: East Gallatin River, Gallatin Valley
July 20 & 21: Mountain Sky Guest Ranch, Emigrant, MT


Mountain Time Arts is pleased to bring internationally renowned choreographer Ann Carlson to southwestern Montana this July. Carlson’s majestic opus THE SYMPHONIC BODY/WATER will feature 60 performers from our region. THE SYMPHONIC BODY’s performers are community members including agricultural producers, politicians, anglers, environmentalists, business leaders, scientists, artists and more. Together they will spotlight the human labor and activity of our locality’s diverse water workers. Instead of instruments, individuals in Carlson’s orchestra perform gestures based on the motions of their workday. MTA has commissioned celebrated Montana architect Ben Lloyd to design an orchestral shell to house Carlson’s unique performance work. THE SYMPHONIC BODY/WATER will take place in two magnificent locations in Montana’s Gallatin and Paradise Valleys.

There will be a reception with food and drink following each performance.
