Since 2001, Forklift Danceworks has presented over 25 distinct community-based dance projects. Collaborators have included sanitation workers, warehouse employees, and power linemen. The company’s performances seek to create greater connection between citizens and across communities, deeper understanding of the jobs essential to urban life, and more informed civic dialogue. Presented in large-scale, site-specific settings, Forklift Danceworks’ free performances consistently play to capacity with audiences of 500-6,000 people.
