From the Ground Up


A DANCE WITH WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY FACILITIES AND CAMPUS SERVICES
October 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2019 at 7 PM on Hearn Plaza

Presented by IPLACe, Forklift Danceworks directed 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 partnered with Facilities and Campus Services staff to co-create a large-scale, site-specific performance 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 highlighted the skill and grace in the work that keeps campus running.
