Action Heroes


Elizabeth Streb

Action Heroes includes extreme action works derived from classic stunts. Working with the Espana Circus Family, a group that integrates traditional circus arts with wild action like rodeo and kung fu film stunts, Action Heroes attempts to find the universal actions that transcend class, adopting movements associated with the circus and fusing them with movement associated with high-risk sports.
