STREB Extreme Action Raw: Wednesday, October 27, 2010, 7 pm (No school the next day!) Presented at a special family-friendly time with discounted ticket price of $20 for students. Merrill Auditorium, Portland, Maine. FMI: STREB Extreme Action Raw.
Once called the Evel Knievel of dance, Elizabeth Streb is an innovative pioneer who never stops exploring. Her choreography, which she calls PopAction, intertwines the disciplines of dance, athletics, boxing, rodeo, the circus, and Hollywood stunt-work. The result combines daring with strict precision in pursuit of the public display of pure movement. Breathtaking and heart-stopping, Raw is a truly unique dance experience sure to amaze. It may cause you to imagine what Extreme Eurythmy could look like! (10/19)
STREB’s unique movement art...has reached a peak of theatricality and dare-all virtuosity. – The Village Voice
Managing your nervous system: a 5 week class at Bowdoin College. Our autonomic nervous system determines our basic perception of and responses to our environment. We can retrain our autonomics; doing so allows us to see the opportunities and resources in any situation. Creativity and compassion can become more available no matter the circumstance. We will use simple and easily memorable breathing, movement, and awareness exercises to increase our capacity to adapt with grace on all levels: physically, psychologically, and spiritually.
