“My investigation of movement has led me to choices which vary from traditional norms. My dancers and I see the rehearsal as a laboratory for testing scientific principles on the body. We invent action ideas which we think are archetypal, noticeable, understandable. The outcome is a mixture of slam dancing, exquisite and amazing human flight and a wild action sport which captures kids, older people and the general public’s hearts and minds and bodies.”

Elizabeth Streb

The members of Elizabeth Streb’s company, STREB EXTREME ACTION, combine virtuosity and technical skill with openhearted popular appeal. Founded in New York City in 1985 by choreographer Elizabeth Streb, the company has traveled, artistically as well as geographically, from the heights of the experimental dance world to the cutting-edge of popular entertainment.
“If dancers are the athletes of God, Streb’s members are the gladiators. Flipping, tumbling, leaping marvels, they perform one arduous feat after another, putting their brawny bodies through punishing routines that leave their audiences grimacing and shielding their eyes.”

Claudia La Rocco, The New York Times

          TIME MACHINE

          Emerging from the pandemic with a newfound appreciation for their past, the STREB Extreme Action Company revisits their roots with a retrospective of Elizabeth Streb’s classic solos from the 70s and 80s, early equipment experimentations from the 90s, and extreme action opuses with the large scale “action machines” which the company has since become known for from the early 21st century. This historic look back not only provides a sense of grounding, and an instructional DNA for how Streb built to human flight, but it sows the company’s soil for new seeds of extreme action to germinate as they push boundaries into the future. Time Machine premiered at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival 2021.


          Bring the Extreme Action to your next event.

          For forty years, STREB has performed in theaters large and small, served as artists-in-residence at the world’s top art museums, and taken its work into the streets and sports stadiums. The company has also taken their signature extreme action to iconic locations including Grand Central Station, Coney Island’s fairground, the Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage, Madison Square Garden, the mall outside the Smithsonian Institution and more.
