Forklift Danceworks presents Trash Dance
The Trash Project, a dance with 24 sanitation workers and 16 large vehicles of Austin Resource Recovery, premiered on the misty Mueller tarmac in 2009. The documentary Trash Dance chronicled what it took to make trash trucks and workers dance on that tarmac and how hundreds of Austinites in the audience saw sanitation work and workers in a new light. Directed by local filmmaker Andrew Garrison, the film provides a special look at this year-long collaborative artmaking process led by Forklift Danceworks.
Forklift and Austin Resource Recovery will present a family friendly event and outdoor screening of Trash Dance to celebrate sanitation workers and this one-of-a-kind dance. Hosted by Terrill Haigler aka Instagram’s @YaFavTrashman, audience members will also hear from ARR sanitation operators about their essential work and learn how ARR works to protect and positively impact our environment.
