Ann Carlson premieres her Creative Capital Project The Symphonic Body in southwestern Montana. Carlson’s majestic opus will feature 60 performers from the Montana 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 will take place in two magnificent locations in Montana’s Gallatin and Paradise Valleys.
