About the Author

Called the Evel Knievel of dance, Elizabeth Streb intertwines the disciplines of dance, athletics, rodeo, the circus, and Hollywood stunt-work. She founded STREB in 1985, which performs internationally in theaters, museums, and town squares. She established S.L.A.M. (STREB Lab for Action Mechanics) in 2003, a factory space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, which produces a cottage industry of extreme action performances and invites everyday people to wonder about movement, gravity, and flight.

A short, entertaining peak into the life and work of PopAction choreographer, Elizabeth Streb. She is both brilliant and insane. A enjoyable and informative read.

I just read Elizabeth Streb's book How To Become An Extreme Action Hero. Terrific explanation of Elizabeth's philosophy. Most of these dance books are by dance critics who never choreographed or explored their own philosophy of movement. Elizabeth has written a clear verbal examination.
