STREB announces Time Machine performances

STREB Extreme Action is excited to announce its upcoming home season performances, featuring works from one of its latest productions, Time Machine. Performances promise to deliver STREB’s signature thrilling feats. The season runs March 24 through May 21, 2023; Fridays at 7:30pm, Saturdays at 5pm and Sundays at 3pm. 

Often called the Evel Knievel of dance, Co-Artistic Director and Choreographer Elizabeth Streb and STREB Extreme Action have been thrilling and terrifying audiences for more than 40 years. This spring, Streb and newly appointed Co-Artistic Director Cassandre Joseph, along with their Action Heroes will again open the doors to their Brooklyn lab where they have been experimenting with a retrospective set of action events— including repertory favorites Air, an inspiring, soaring trampoline-based piece, and Tip, an action packed, teeter-totter for the stout of heart; new performers take on the classic duet Tied, a study in physics and force where two bodies are tethered to one another; plus a selection of rarely seen solos originally performed by Elizabeth Streb in the 70s and 80s. 

Time Machine is a journey through Elizabeth Streb’s career that explores her classic solos from the 70s and 80s, early equipment experimentations from the 90s, and jaw-dropping extreme action opuses with the large scale “action machines” the company has since become known for from the early 21st century. This historic look back connects the line from the company’s experimental past to the extreme action of their current and future works.

STREB Extreme Action pushes the limits of dance with its unique blend of athleticism, skill, daring, and the invention of Action Machines. This unmatched approach allows the dancers to employ a new set of motions in space, encouraging complex body discoveries, therefore mysterious forces are harnessed. The company is renowned for its death-defying stunts and high-energy, physically demanding performances that challenge traditional notions of dance and push the boundaries of what is possible. Bring your friends, the family, and experience the fun, grit, and explosive sights of action and innovation. 

General admission tickets are available for $25. Premium Seating available for $50/ticket. Visit https://streb.org/homeseason
