Due to the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus crisis, STREB’s Annual Action Maverick Award Benefit scheduled for Monday, May 11, 2020, will be held virtually.

This year, STREB Honors Action Maverick Award Winner, 

A visionary architect whose firm REX  consistently challenges and advances building typologies, and promotes the agency of architecture.

While we won’t be able to meet in person, we are still planning remote festivities and need your support now more than ever. 

Proceeds from this year’s benefit will help provide critical funds to the organization so we can:

  • Maintain steady employment for our dancers, faculty and staff who are financially vulnerable, especially at this time;

  • Continue to invent, innovate and inspire as we move our programs online in STREB Remote;

  • Mitigate the extremely large financial impact we anticipate due to our performance cancellations and postponements.

Please stay tuned for our online art auction and consider making an additional donation to STREB at this time so we can continue to work to bring our groundbreaking work to you during this difficult time period.

What is an Action Maverick

An original. A person that breaks the rules, re-interprets or establishes new parameters of their craft. New artistic, educational, scientific visions. A risk taker. A hero.

STREB’s Action Maverick Award Benefit celebrates the heroes who inspire us, and serves as our signature fundraising event, helping us to pursue our mission and sustain our entire organization. Funds raised support Elizabeth Streb’s design and invention of new machines which allow our Action Heroes to explore and discover new movement territories. It makes possible our creative collaborations, educational partnerships and community engagement programs that inspire and empower the Action Heroes and leaders of tomorrow. And, it ensures that our performances and educational opportunities remain accessible to all through our scholarship and ticket subsidy programs.
