Sometimes inspiration is found in unexpected places. Choreographer Allison Orr joins city sanitation workers on their daily routes to listen, learn, and ultimately to try to convince them to collaborate in a unique dance performance. Hard working, their lives are already full with work, family and dreams of their own. But after months of rehearsal, the trash collectors and their trucks perform an extraordinary spectacle. On an abandoned airport runway, thousands of people show up to see how in the world a garbage truck can “dance.” Screens with Bookin’.
