Item Description

Winner receives a gift certificate for one free pop action technique class!

Experience the technique that is the foundation of the STREB Extreme Action Company's creative process. POPACTION intertwines dance, athletics, boxing, rodeo, the circus, and Hollywood stuntwork into a bristling muscle-and-motion vocabulary.

In 2003 STREB established S.L.A.M. (the STREB Lab for Action Mechanics) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Since then, SLAM has become a creative center, a destination, and an integral part of its Brooklyn neighborhood. Building on the company’s own use of SLAM as a laboratory for artistic experimentation, the company has developed an extensive calendar of programs which bring myriad constituents into the creative conversation. These programs include two annual extended-run home performance seasons, a full schedule of classes and workshops for children and adults in both the POP ACTION School and the España/STREB Trapeze Academy, a summer camp, an Emerging Artist Commissioning Program, KIDS IN CONTROL (a program for at-risk youth in partnership with the Greenpoint YMCA) and TEEN ACTION (an education initiative in collaboration with the El Puente Leadership Center). Even with all this activity, SLAM is still something more. The magnitude and substance of its programs create a unique culture -- company rehearsals, which are always open to the public, happen simultaneously while aerial artists practice overhead, technicians work on equipment, children attend class, family members look on, neighborhood residents stop in.
