Company Information

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. 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 7 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. STREB's company members have accrued endless art-world awards. The action-engineers of STREB are top-notch performers, with years of training in ballet, modern dance, martial arts, acrobatics and the circus arts. When not touring the world, STREB company's home is SLAM, the STREB Lab for Action Mechanics, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. At SLAM, we rehearse, hold classes for children and adults, and perform works-in-progress for the community. SLAM is open to the public and everyone and anyone is encouraged to observe rehearsals.
