Description

STREB, SEA (Singular Extreme Action)

January 27, 2018 | 3PM & 8PM Showings
January 28, 2018 | 2PM Showing
(90 minutes, including 15 minute intermission)
(Post-show Q&As on January 27th)

MacArthur “Genius” Award-winner, Elizabeth Streb has dived through glass, allowed a ton of dirt to fall on her head, walked down (the outside of) London’s City Hall, and set herself on fire, among other feats of extreme action. Streb founded STREB EXTREME ACTION in 1985 and has investigated the possibility of human flight ever since. Centrifugal force, gravity, impact, balance/counter-balance and strength have been the focus of her extraordinary company of dancers for decades, and OZ Arts is thrilled to welcome them to Nashville.

SEA is a wild kaleidoscope of Action Events and music; human bodies careening through, around, and above invented hardware accompanied by STREB’s resident DJ & Emcee. SEA combines new work with reimagined signature pieces, instilling them with new life and energy.

Her popular book, STREB: How to Become an Extreme Action Hero, was made into a hit documentary, BORN TO FLY: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity, directed by Catherine Gund (Aubin Pictures), which premiered at SXSW and received an extended run at The Film Forum in New York City in 2014. For London 2012 – the Cultural Olympiad for the Summer Games, STREB was commissioned to create “One Extraordinary Day” - 7 action events across major London landmarks including the Millennium Bridge, Trafalgar Square and The London Eye.
