From the Ground Up


A DANCE WITH WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY FACILITIES AND CAMPUS SERVICES

October 4th and 5th, 2019

Presented by IPLACe, Forklift Danceworks directs From the Ground Up, a dance featuring the movement and stories of Custodial, Maintenance and Utilities, Landscaping, Construction, and Waste Reduction employees. Through a series of residencies, Forklift artists are partnering with Facilities and Campus Services staff to co-create a large-scale, site-specific performance to take place on Hearn Plaza. From garden beds to dorm room floors, from door frames to rooftops, Facilities and Campus Services staff work across campus every day. From the Ground Up will highlight the skill and grace in the work that keeps campus running.

On Campus: Dances with College Campus Employees is a touring project with partnering college campuses in Forklift’s collaborative art making method. From the Ground Up is the second in the series, following Served – Williams College, a dance with Williams College Dining Services.
