Special Guest: Elizabeth Streb
Saturday, July 17, 2004
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. And she is currently the 'Dean's Special Scholar' at New York University at the Draper Program working towards an M.A. in Time and Space studying Physics, Philosophy and Architecture.
