Streb PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Streb free pdf Once called the Evel Knievel of dance, Elizabeth Streb intertwines the disciplines of dance, athletics, rodeo, the circus and Hollywood stunt-work. She founded Streb in 1985, which performs internationally in theatres, museums and town squares. In this pathbreaking book, Streb combines memoir and analysis to convey how she became an extreme action dancer/choreographer, developing a form of movement that's more Nascar than modern dance, more boxing than ballet. With b/w and colour photography throughout.
