STREB has a knack for creating intricate contrapuntal patterns in unlikely spaces. Gravity be damned. Los Angeles Times
STREB began in 1985 with Elizabeth Strebís stubborn investigation of Action, ranging from every day movements to the Extreme Action of sports, the circus and thrill rides; the impulse to action that is in our souls.
Since then the company has evolved into a world class entertainment phenomenon that retains true to its scientific and populist roots. STREB invents action ideas that are daring, yet understandable, that soar past our critical senses and land in our hearts. Now, in FORCES, Streb collaborates with a cadre of theater specialists to . . . create a show based on all the questions STREB has historically asked; questions that are Newtonian in nature and that veer into quantum mechanical impossible zones.
Streb is on a quest to present her newest action events with a clear theatrical trajectory. If Action were drama, what is its true story? What makes Action tick? 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 invented by Noe and Ivan Espana intermittently eject bodies. The artists and collaborators involved in the creation of FORCES, all recognized as being at the forefront if their fields, are joined by their passion to rethink the interface between people, technology, and society. FORCES is the story of Action, it is the journey to harness the invisible forces, it is the quest to mount a machine and learn its tricks.
