Swing Shift

Swing Shift is a series of duets responding to the movements of Downtown Clean and Safe public maintenance and sanitation workers. Dancers in the Swing Shift ensemble act when the Clean and Safe crew is off-duty. Workers and dancers alike respond to surges in waste production. Formalizing the interplay that already occurs between maintenance workers and unexpected zones of local activity, Swing Shift recasts these work patterns into a visual choreographic score and subsequent movement. Swing Shift is directed by Tori Abernathy, with choreographic score produced by Grace Poetzinger, costume design by Alyssa Beers, performances by Hannon Welch, Keyon Gaskin, Leah Wilmoth, Simone Wood, and the Clean and Safe Crew.
