Special Guest: Elizabeth Streb
Saturday, March 05, 2005
Kurt Andersen and the choreographer Elizabeth Streb explore the dangerous sides of creating dance, music, and sculpture.
Elizabeth Streb is a choreographer with few boundaries. She combines elements of dance, athletics, extreme-sports, circus arts, and action-movie stunt work into a new kind of movement, where she and her dancers dive through glass and fly on the trapeze. In 1997 she was awarded a MacArthur Foundation Genius award. She is currently the 'Dean's Special Scholar' at the Draper Program at New York University, working toward an M.A. in Time and Space.
