Trash Dance

Rochester Labor Film Series 2012

TRASH DANCE

(Andrew Garrison, US 2012, 65 min.)

Garrison’s camera follows Austin (TX) choreographer Allison Orr as she observes and learns the work of trash collectors and then collaborates with them to turn the rhythms of their jobs into a dazzling dance routine. The culminating live performance of workers and their vehicles, presented on an airport runway before thousands of spectators, is not to be missed. While we have all seen trash collectors on our streets, this imaginative choreographer enables us to appreciate the skill and dignity of these workers. Note: A post-screening conversation with the Director, including audience Q&A, will be held via Skype technology.

Films are screened 8 pm Fridays in September and October at the George Eastman House, 900 East Avenue.
