Elizabeth Streb and her Extreme Action Company give Action a voice and a story in FORCES. Big ideas, big hardware, big hearts and big muscles collide in this big show for the whole family.
FORCES is the story of Action. Bowling balls fall, a floor rapidly turns to create turbulence, a 25-foot square wall is occupied by counter-weighted performers and the Whizzing Gizmo intermittently ejects bodies into space.
Called the Evel Knievel of dance, Streb's choreography intertwines dance, boxing, rodeo, the circus, and Hollywood stunt-work to create a bristling, muscle-and-motion experience that combines daring with strict precision.
