STREB: How to Become an Extreme Action Hero
Elizabeth Streb
Foreword by Anna Deavere Smith

-Mikhail Baryshnikov-

You are cordially invited to a reading at 7:30pm on Thursday August 12th at:

McNally Jackson Books

Teen Action

Elizabeth Streb has been testing the potential of the human body since childhood. Can she fly? Can she run up walls? Can she break through glass? How fast can she go? Combining memoir and theory, Streb conveys how she became an extreme action choreographer, developing a form of movement that's more NASCAR than modern dance, more boxing than ballet. This book is for those who try or are willing to do just about anything to become a hero in their own way.
