Allison Orr and Served
In January 2016, multiple NEA grant recipient Allison Orr came to Wake Forest to teach and share her work in both classes and a screening of the film Trash Dance. Over the next couple of years, IPLACe will continue a collaboration with her company, Forklift Danceworks, culminating in SERVED, a cross-campus dance project involving service workers from Wake Forest’s Reynolda and Downtown campuses. Orr and her company will join us five times in the coming years, as we develop this large-scale public event that is, as yet, impossible to describe. Showcasing the talents of important members of our community who are sometimes overlooked, WFU’s fabulous service employees. Served will not only be high-quality dance work, it will hopefully be a relationship building project with long-lasting effects.
