Public Art Film Screening of Trash Dance

CenterStage, Reston Community Center Hunters Woods

2310 Colts Neck Road

Reston, Virginia 20191

You are invited to the screening of “Trash Dance” followed by a Q&A with choreographer Allison Orr.

Synopsis: 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.”
