We are pleased to honor our next collaborator: Elizabeth Streb

Elizabeth STREB’S unconventional reconceptualization of American postmodern dance is an avant garde combination of stunt show, extreme sport and artistry. Streb is a MacArthur “Genius” Award-winner who has dived through glass, allowed a ton of dirt to fall on her head for the Whitney Groundbreaking; walked down (the outside of) London’s City Hall for the London 2012 Olympics; and set herself on fire for her partner’s, Laura Flanders 40th birthday- among other feats of extreme action.  We wish to salute the motion lexicon that she and her company have aspired to create and their work which speaks of, and to, intrinsic human potential.

“I want my work to make all of us want to do more, go further. I believe that action – on the stage and in the street – is the most powerful force on earth. I believe it can cure sad hearts and sated minds, and I am trying to prove this point.” – Elizabeth Streb
