STREB asks for your support to help us imagine a new future in 2023.

2022 was an especially momentous year for STREB. We started the year in the depths of the Omicron variant and ended it with a full return of STREB EXTREME ACTION performances at SLAM, our Brooklyn action lab, home and stage. Thanks to our constellation of friends and supporters, we not only survived, but in many ways STREB continues to thrive. 

In 2022, we recommitted to our core values and leaned into our artistic legacy for creative inspiration. We utilized relief funding to keep all STREB dancers and staff employed and created pathways for professional advancement. Artistically, Elizabeth Streb drew on archival footage to create TIME MACHINE, a full-length performance that traces STREB’s evolution from early experimentation to the extreme work of today and toured that work in Seattle and Pittsburgh. She also unveiled SURF: A Maverick Wave, a new Action Machine designed to evoke motions of surfers confronting the ocean’s gargantuan, 70 to 100 feet high, maverick waves, with power and turbulence

As the pandemic receded, STREB embraced the chance to collaborate again. We partnered with The Walk Productions and St. Ann’s Warehouse to bring Little Amal, a giant puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee girl, to SLAM for a special theatrical presentation and this fall, we’ve reengaged with our public-school partners to bring Elizabeth’s risk-taking and boundary breaking signature technique to over 200 NYC school children.

The artistic and organizational accomplishments of 2022 have energized us for 2023, including celebrating our 20th anniversary at SLAM, touring TIME MACHINE nationally and internationally, and rebuilding our education program to full capacity. At the same time, we are acutely aware that STREB is facing the headwinds of change. The pandemic has permanently altered the landscape for the entire cultural sector, and we need to find innovative ways to restructure our business model and reimagine how we can best serve our audiences and students of all ages.

STREB asks for your support to help imagine a new future in 2023.
