Elizabeth Streb and her impressive action heroes are daring performers who combine dance and acrobatics in dazzling ways. They’ve strutted their stuff in such venues as the Park Avenue Armory, Gansevoort Plaza, and the World Financial Center, as well as around the world, as documented in Born to Fly: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity and OXD: One Extraordinary Day. They are now bringing back Sea to their Williamsburg home, performing the “wild kaleidoscope” from April 13 through May 7. Led by associate artistic director Fabio Tavares and action heroes Leonardo Giron Torres, Cassandre Joseph, Jackie Carlson, Daniel Rysak, Felix Hess, Jamarious Stewart, Loganne Bond, and Matt McEwen, the sixty-minute work will feature DJs and an emcee, invented hardware, and breathtaking — and dangerous — site-specific action events. “In the past few years, it occurred to me that instruments in an orchestra don’t just compose one symphony. A guitar doesn’t just invent one riff or a single melody. Our ‘action machines’ have more than one dance in them,” Streb explains on the company website. Tickets are $25 in advance and include popcorn and one drink.
