STREB: "Forces"

STREB: "Forces"

Dancers duck and weave to avoid colliding with a swinging steel beam. A lone figure launches into a 25-foot swan dive with only a padded mat to catch her. Performers jump and roll with mechanical accuracy, falling with all their weight where a fellow dancer was a moment before. These are some of the scenes set in "Forces," which eschews the delicate steps often associated with dance in favor of muscular athleticism. As the New York Times marvels, the performance "doesn’t so much push the boundaries of strength and endurance as it removes them." Further underlining the show's emphasis on the exploration of limits, artistic director Elizabeth Streb appears on video to explain her inspiration. All the while, the high-energy pieces boldly demonstrate what the human body can do, provided it hasn't suddenly turned to taffy.

Streb Lab for Action Mechanics

Elizabeth Streb has been called the Evel Knievel of dance and, odd as the title may initially seem, it fits her style perfectly. Like the famous daredevil, Streb has spent her career pushing the human body to its limits—but rather than motorcycles and dangerously sequined jumpsuits, she works with physically demanding choreography that often derives its thrill from its risk. Her style, dubbed "Popaction," mixes such disparate elements as athletics, rodeo, the circus, and Hollywood stunt-work to create wildly kinetic explorations of the human body's potential. At her studio, the Streb Lab for Action Mechanics—SLAM, for short—Streb showcases her work by staging pieces and leading classes in her signature style.
