The story of action by the people who live it.

November 8th – December 22rd, 2013

“Streb’s audacious two-part show doesn’t so much push the boundaries of strength and endurance as it removes them.” NY Times

STREB, New York’s Own Action Heroes spring into action with latest edition of their acclaimed, crowd-pleasing, Forces at SLAM (Streb Lab for Action Mechanics), their Williamsburg playground. Elizabeth Streb and her Extreme Action Company have teamed with theater luminaries to give Action a voice and story in Forces. It’s the theater of flight and impact, physics and courage, powered by pure adrenaline. Forces is co-directed by Robert Woodruff (Dog Days, ART), with music by longtime Streb collaborator, David Van Tieghem. It features a book by Jim Lewis (Fela!) and projection design by Wendell Harrington (Grey Gardens) and Erik Pearson. Spatial Rift video design is by Aaron Henderson. Robert Wierzel (Fela!) is the lighting designer and costume design is by Andrea Lauer (Bring It On, American Idiot).
