Description
Not just a choreographer, Elizabeth Streb is a wildly extreme action architect. Born to Fly: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity traces the evolution of Streb’s movement philosophy as she pushes herself and her dancers from the ground, to the wall, to the sky. Guided by her theory of movement—to walk on walls, dive through glass, move so fast you disappear and…fly; the film asks: Can adrenaline be a form of medicine? When does movement become art? Why be a part of it? Wrestling with these questions, and more, Born to Fly offers an exhilarating tale of the necessity of art, inspiring audiences hungry for a more tactile and fierce existence in the world.
