Elizabeth Streb, the logical and exacting renegade movementmaker, discusses her formal roots—in the Church, in the ballet, in modern dance, in mathematics and physics—and her spectacular trajectory into her current idiom and vehicle for physical, mental, and social change—STREB EXTREME ACTION. In her conversation with dance critic Nancy Dalva, Streb asks, “What makes movement real? What gives a moment meaning?” and explores such topics as formalism versus formality, the calculus of risk, and the peril of metaphor. It’s a discussion that lovers of dance won’t want to miss.
