Summary:

Elizabeth Streb and the STREB Extreme Action Company form a motley troupe of flyers and crashers. Propelled by Streb's edict that "anything too safe is not action," these daredevils challenge the assumptions of art, aging, injury, gender, and human possibility. The film traces the evolution of Elizabeth Streb's movement philosophy as she pushes herself and her performers from the ground to the sky, revealing the passions behind the dancers' bruises and broken noses. Includes performance excerpts.
