Celebrating 20 Years

This year, Forklift Danceworks celebrates twenty years of creative collaboration!

Our first dance In Case of Fire was a collaboration with firefighters from the Austin Fire Department. Since that performance in 2001, Forklift has made dances with sanitation workers, energy linemen, campus dining staff, baseball players, and many more people who serve our communities.

We want to celebrate with you! Throughout our twentieth year, we’ll be reflecting on the people we’ve danced with and places that have inspired us.

Check back here and follow along on Facebook and Instagram as we add events and ways to connect with us this year.

Our successes have always been possible due to financial support from people like you!

On the Job: 20 Portraits from 20 Years

On the Job: 20 Portraits from 20 Years highlights the work of twenty people who have collaborated and performed with Forklift Danceworks. Created through interviews between Forklift choreographers and our collaborators, the series shares the voices and experiences of people whose work sustains our communities.
