Our action heroes are hard at work re-creating some classic solos from the archives to perform at the Pillow. Above, Jackie (left) and Brigitte (right) tackle POLE VAULTS which Elizabeth Streb (center, Credit: Lois Greenfield, 1983) first created in 1978. Check out more clips of our heroes in action (see here and here) as they take on other early solos including 7 Minutes and 43 Seconds (1978), ADD, WHIPLASH & TARGET (1983). Stay tuned for more from rehearsals as the company tackles some challenging group repertory from the 90s, 00s!

Anne Bogart and Elizabeth Streb revisit the creation of FALLING & LOVING, the "straight up beautiful and incredibly funny" work by SITI and STREB (NYTimes). In a conversation moderated by Lisa Donmall-Reeve, producer of the award-winning documentary UPROOTED, this virtual event presented by Columbia Festival of the Arts will feature behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage and insights into the collaboration between two titans of contemporary performance.
Our YouTube Channel Playlists now contain a treasure trove of videos, interviews and expanded versions of the clips we've been sharing on social media. Check out the latest—like this clip of Elizabeth Streb reflecting on SURFACE.

On Facebook and Instagram, you'll find more insights and interviews from Elizabeth like how she dealt with the scale of the Park Avenue Armory in KISS THE AIR and the massive force of air rams for AIR HURL. You'll also find Rehearsal Sneak Peeks, Side-by-Side Throwbacks, PopAction in the Wild, inspiring action adventures, and Kid PopAction Art.
