Elizabeth Streb

Artistic director, Streb Laboratory for Action Mechanics

Elizabeth Streb, 1997 recipient of a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation "Genius" Award, was one called the Evel Knievel of dance. Her choreography intertwines the disciplines of dance, athletics, boxing, rodeo, the circus, and Hollywood stunt-work. In 2003 Streb established S.L.A.M. (STREB Lab for Action Mechanics) in Brooklyn, NY. S.L.A.M.'s door is literally open for the community to come in and watch rehearsals, take classes and learn to fly.
