Part of Thalia Docs / Film

Dir. Catherine Gund. 2014. Documentary. USA. Color. 83 minutes.

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. Born to Fly: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity traces the evolution of Elizabeth Streb's movement philosophy as she pushes herself and her performers from the ground to the sky. 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 existence in the world.
