STREB Extreme Action

Jun 3, 2022 - Jun 5, 2022
The Backyard
149 8th Street
Pittsburgh, PA 15222

Taking flight by pushing the boundaries of aesthetics and kinesthetic bravery, MacArthur Award-winning choreographer Elizabeth Streb is known for “her loud, unflinching explorations of physics” and has, “devised what looks like her own Olympic sport” (The New York Times).

Returning to Pittsburgh for the first time in over a decade, STREB Extreme Action revisits their roots with a retrospective of Elizabeth Streb’s 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 their experimental path with the extreme action of their current and future works.
