TRASH DANCE

March 20, 2014

Trash Dance is a film that finds beauty and grace in a completely unexpected place – garbage trucks and in the unseen men and women who pick up our trash. American filmmaker, Andrew Garrison follows choreographer Allison 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.
