BORN TO FLY: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity [Official Trailer] from Aubin Pictures on Vimeo.

BORN TO FLY is infused with Streb’s passion for action – to walk on walls; dive through glass; move so fast you disappear; fly.

Sometimes called the Evel Knievel of dance, she is the pioneer of a movement form called “POPACTION,” which. is couched in the exploration of human potential – both physical and emotional. She uses choreography to demonstrate the power and complexities of age, gender, class, and race - both for her dancers and her audiences. BORN TO FLY wrestles with these complexities in order to propagate confidence and bravery among the diverse communities that can be inspired by Streb’s philosophy and her punch.
