This event replaces Circa, previously scheduled for Jan. 20–22, 2022. Previously issued tickets for Circa can be used for entry to STREB EXTREME ACTION.
Called the Evel Knievel of modern dance, legendary “PopAction” choreographer Elizabeth Streb makes her dancers fly with “unflinching explorations of physics” (The New York Times). By pushing the boundaries of aesthetics and the human body, her fierce and physical critique of modern dance “courts danger, tricks the eye, and thrills the spirit” (Trisha Brown, choreographer/visual artist.)
Returning to Seattle for the first time in 15 years, her company STREB EXTREME ACTION revisits its roots with a retrospective of Elizabeth Streb’s classic solos from the ‘70s and ‘80s, experimentations from the ‘90s, and jaw-dropping extreme action opuses on the large-scale “action machines” the company has become known for in the 21st century.
