Amazing! High energy, awesome athleticism, clever presentation, and a little New York attitude thrown in for good measure! See this show, period!!!

Very different - great combination of athletics and clever sets
Some good humor and dramatic visuals
I would recomend they also add lights and or dayglow to some of the activities and perform in the dark - would have been very dramatic!

Description

Thrill to the impact of extreme sports combined with the poetry and split-second timing of dance. Exploding with the suspense and energy of near-misses and imminent crashes, action-architect Elizabeth Streb’s daring performers explore the boundaries of force, gravity, action and reaction. Whether flying, falling, or seemingly suspended in mid-air, Streb brings the audience ringside for a match-up of human pitted against the phenomenal forces of everyday physical action—creating a new aesthetic of grace and danger.
