Forklift Danceworks

Yesterday I had a dream-like experience at the Bartholomew Pool called “My Park, My Pool, My City“, here in Austin, Tx. I’ve heard about the outstanding/unusual pieces by Forklift Danceworks but unfortunately, I’ve never seen it in action until yesterday. MIND BLOWN!

They choreograph, integrate, and create an experience that gave me chills, and made me shear a tear or two; the way they expose the everyday art, the common hero, it’s so simple and gorgeous!

Music by our local genius, Graham Reynolds, choreography by Allison Orr & Krissie Marty, performances by the staff at Austin’s Parks & Recreation (PARD)/ Aquatics Program and the community.

Let this fun piece connect you to your community, inner child and humanity in general, your soul would truly appreciate it!

There are a few tickets left here, make sure you get them!
