SEA (Singular Extreme Actions) | STREB

Elizabeth Streb’s SEA is a thrilling and death-defying work in which daredevil performers interact with mechanics and hardware specifically created for the show. In this edge-of-your-seat, adrenalinized spectacle, the real-life action heroes of Streb’s company STREB Extreme Action redefine physics with unique “PopAction” choreography that intertwines dance, athletics, boxing, rodeo, circus and stunt work. The result is pure daring combined with the strictest precision. The SEA experience includes a soundtrack created by STREB’s resident DJ and emcee, Zaire Baptista.

STREB Extreme Action combines virtuosity and technical skill with openhearted popular appeal. Founded in New York City more than 30 years ago by MacArthur “Genius” Grant-winner Elizabeth Streb, the company has traveled, artistically as well as geographically, from the soaring heights of experimental dance to the cutting-edge of popular entertainment. In 2012, STREB was invited to participate in a festival as part of the London Olympics, performing unique events incorporating major London landmarks, all culminating with a high-flying performance on The London Eye. 

Describing STREB’s work, The New York Times has said, “Danger and beauty hang in the air.” The Boston Globe has written that Streb is “an alchemist, concocting a potent brew of dance, gymnastics and physics that transforms these elements into an exhilarating evening of movement.” The New Yorker states plainly, “Streb’s dances don’t tell stories; they aren’t made to be beautiful or to illustrate an emotion, an event, or a conceit. They mean what they appear to mean, and they aren’t set to music.” And in Streb’s own words, there is one, simple goal “live or die, it’s time to fly.”
