Forklift Danceworks



Forklift Danceworks activates communities through a collaborative creative process. Since 2001, the company has presented over 25 distinct community-based dance projects with partners including sanitation workers, warehouse employees, and power linemen. Through performance, the company seeks to create opportunities for deeper understanding of the jobs essential to urban life, more informed civic dialogue, and greater connection between citizens and across communities. The company has created community-based projects internationally in Kyoto, Japan; Rotterdam, The Netherlands; and Venice, Italy. The Trash Project, Forklift's collaboration with Austin's Sanitation Department, is documented in the award-winning film Trash Dance, available to stream on iTunes and Amazon. Learn more at
