Born to Fly: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity

Season 16 Episode 15 | 55m 31s

Not just a choreographer, Elizabeth Streb is a wildly extreme action architect. <i>Born to Fly: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity</i> traces the evolution of her movement philosophy over 30 years as Streb pushes herself and her dancers from the ground, to the wall, and to the sky. The film culminates with her group's gravity-defying performances in London’s Cultural Olympiad before the 2012 Olympics.
