Celebrating the Colorado River
‘Water Songs: Ha Tay G’am’ is a new live music and video project exploring the history of the Colorado River. Featuring compositions by John Luther Adams, William Brittelle, Shara Worden, Sarah Kirkland Snider, and Paola Prestini, the delightful collaboration will be performed by MASS MoCA favorite Roomful of Teeth on Saturday, March 1, at 8 p.m. in the Hunter Center. ‘Ha Tay G’am,’ a Native American term for the Colorado River. The film is a purely visual documentary accompanied by original music. A Native American storyteller mixes legend with geology, an acrobat works as a high-scaler at the Hoover dam, a migrant worker toils in the fertile fields nearby: each tells a story at once distinct and interwoven with the larger history. Tickets are available through the MASS MoCA box office, located on Marshall Street in North Adams, Mass., calling 413-662-2111 or online at massmoca.org.
