Choreographing the City: Policy through Performance

Choreographing the City: Policy through Performance
Recording: Choreographing the City: Policy through Performance, Mar 13, 2018

For 16 years, Forklift Danceworks has utilized the creative process of co-choreographed performances with city workers and communities to tackle city planning issues. Their latest 3-year Pools Project uses dance to engage historically disenfranchised communities on the East Side of Austin as the City crafts a new master plan to address its aging aquatic infrastructure. Forklift embodies creative placemaking to harness the power of narratives to transform communities, attitudes and behaviors.
