"STREB has a knack for creating intricate contrapuntal patterns in unlikely spaces. Gravity be damned." —Los Angeles Times

Elizabeth Streb, the "Evel Knievel of Dance," nimbly weaves dance, aesthetics, rodeo, the circus, and Hollywood-style stunt work into one amazing live performance. STREB began in 1985 with a stubborn investigation of action, ranging from every day movements to the extreme action of sports, the circus, and thrill rides; the impulse to action that is in our souls. The company is a world-class entertainment phenomenon that stays true to its scientific and populist roots. STREB, whose cutting-edge, dangerous talent was featured at the 2012 London Olympics, invents action ideas that are daring, yet understandable, that soar past our critical senses and land in our hearts. Forces is the story of that action, it is the journey to harness invisible forces, it is the quest to mount a machine and learn its tricks. And it is sure to take your breath away.
