History of STREB

Associate Artistic Director states: "Since its inception in 1985, STREB has traveled, artistically as well as geographically, from the heights of the experimental dance world to the cutting-edge of popular entertainment. In 2013, STREB performed at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park as part of New York City Center's Fall for Dance Festival, at TEDxMet in the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and on the facade of Bergdorf Goodman in New York. STREB was commissioned by the London Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Mayor of London to participate in the London 2012 Festival. On 'One Extraordinary Day' (July 15, 2012), from dawn to midnight, STREB dancers performed seven action events across major London landmarks including the Millennium Bridge, Trafalgar Square, and ending with 'Human Eye,' where 32 daring STREB Action Heroes performed a spoke-dance on the towering, iconic landmark of The London Eye.

"In 2011, STREB performed sold-out shows at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the Whitney Museum of American Art's downtown groundbreaking, and at the River to River Festival. The company has performed in theaters large and small and served as Artists-in-Residence at the world's top art museums, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, Los Angeles MOCA, the Wexner Center in Columbus, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. STREB Extreme Action has also appeared in numerous free public performances in New York City."
