July 25: Gallatin Gateway
July 28: Paradise Valley
July 31: Big Sky

July brings Symphonic Body/Water Work by renowned choreographer and performance artist Ann Carlson. Instead of instruments, individuals in this orchestra perform gestural portraits based on the motions of their workday.

The work will spotlight the human labor and activity of a community, using the diverse water workers of the Gallatin Watershed.

Carlson's work will be performed three times in historic barns located in the Gallatin Valley, Big Sky area and Paradise Valley.






August 25: Missouri Headwaters State Park
(August 26: Rain day)

WaterWorks 2018 will culminate in a celebration honoring water stewardship at the Headwaters in August.

Directed by Mary Ellen Strom, boats will carry musicians down the three rivers that join to form the Missouri, performing an original composition based on Native American and Western musical traditions.

Our community will gather for feasting and ceremonies to recognize the power of this place and our responsibiltiy for healthy and sustainable water as we send it off to the millions of users downstream.
