The STREB Lab for Action Mechanics (SLAM) is home to STREB EXTREME ACTION. 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.

SLAM is the home of STREB activities. Open rehearsals, performances, STREB classes, and other explorations of action mechanics happen here daily.

After STREB Homecoming, we will host a special screening of
Loki Circus Theater’s COLORED GRRLS.

Loki Circus Theater’s COLORED GRRLS, inspired by legendary playwright/poet Ntozake Shange’s For Colored Girls…, tells the stories of African-American women through circus, dance and original text. With unflinching honesty and emotion, each woman expresses her story using physical theater, Zoom, and circus.

This screening was made possible by the City Corps Artist Grant and Streb, Inc.
Registration is mandatory and the link to register is below.
