Singular Extreme Actions / Multiple Extreme Shows – at Brookfield Place
One of life's great thrills is watching people do things you could only imagine doing.
(SEA - Singular Extreme Actions - by STREB on artsbrookfield.com)
And, in some cases, never want to imagine doing!
That's the beauty of Elizabeth Streb’s SEA (Singular Extreme Actions). Described as a "thrilling and death-defying work", her shows are a marvel of excitement and risk where performers engage with "mechanics and apparatus specifically created for the show".
Thursday, May 24 to Saturday, May 26, the 'POPACTION' choreography shows, which "combine dance, athletics, boxing, rodeo, circus, and stunt work", come to nearby Brookfield Place (230 Vesey Street) - as a way of celebrating the launch of summer.
See any (or all!) of the 5 free performances! And marvel at the performers' amazing skill - and risk tolerance.
