Wednesday, June 23, 2021 by Tai Moses
Forklift Danceworks is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a free, outdoor film screening of the documentary Trash Dance, which depicts the company’s collaborative performance with Austin Resource Recovery. ARR sanitation operators will also be on hand to discuss their work protecting the environment. Allison Orr, Forklift founder and artistic director, said, “We’re honored to rejoin our partners at ARR with this film screening and community conversation. When I think back to The Trash Project, I’m still in awe of the incredible performance our city sanitation workers made, as well as the love and support for these employees Austin audiences shared. And now as Austin recovers from Covid, it’s never been more important to highlight the workers who keep our city moving.” Find more info and order tickets here.
