FILM /Talk (about Film/Dance) — Born to Fly: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity 2/8/15 3pm *Barnard College #ATHENA Film Festival

We proclaim ourselves HUGE FANS of Elizabeth Streb and have championed this film from its inception. It also chronicles the troupe’s Spectacular work at the 2012 London Olympics. This film deserves the label of a MUST SEE on a big screen and any chance to hear Elizabeth Streb talk receives our Highest recommendation.

Elizabeth Streb and the STREB Extreme Action Company form a motley troupe of flyers and crashers. Propelled by Streb’s edict that “anything too safe is not action,” these daredevils challenge the assumptions of art, aging, injury, gender, and human possibility. Revealing the passions behind the STREB dancers’ bruises and broken noses, Born to Fly offers a breathtaking tale about the necessity of art, inspiring audiences hungry for a more tactile and fierce experience.

Date: Sunday, February 8, 3:00PM
Location: Held Auditorium, 304 Barnard Hall

Choreographer and film subject, Elizabeth Streb, will join the audience following the screening.
