Returning to the Pillow for the first time in over 20 years, the STREB Extreme Action Company revisits their roots with a retrospective of Elizabeth Streb’s classic solos from the 70s and 80s, early equipment experimentations from the 90s, and jaw-dropping extreme action opuses with the large scale “action machines” the company has since become known for from the early 21st century. This historic look back connects their experimental path with the extreme action of their current and future works. PROGRAM: STREB: From Ringside to Extreme Action; choreography: Elizabeth Streb; music: Allison Cornell, Voodo Fe, technoaxe, Anton Shiloh, and Freshbeatz. Sections: Tip, Pole Vaults, 7'43", Buster, Add, Whiplash, Log, Little Ease, Target, Surface, Link, and Air.
