Friday, June 28th, 2013 @ 7pm, Trash Dance

Choreographer Allison Orr finds beauty and grace in garbage trucks, and in the unseen men and women who pick up our trash. Filmmaker Andrew Garrison follows Orr as she rides along with Austin sanitation workers on their daily routes to observe and later convince them to perform a most unlikely spectacle. On an abandoned airport runway, two dozen trash collectors and their trucks deliver—for one night only —a stunningly beautiful and moving performance, in front of an audience of thousands, who are awed to discover how in the world a garbage truck can "dance."
