An inspiring memoir and self-help guide to greatness by the dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov calls "fearlessness and intelligence combined . . . potent and beautiful."
Called "the Evel Knievel of Dance," Elizabeth Streb has been pushing boundaries and testing the potential of the human body since childhood. Can she fly? Can she run up walls? Can she break through glass? How fast can she go?
With clarity and humor--and with her internationally-renowned dance troupe STREB--she continues to investigate what movement truly is and has come to these conclusions: It's off the ground It creates impact And it hurts trying to stop
Here, Streb combines memoir and analysis to convey how she became an extreme action dancer and choreographer, developing a form of movement that's more NASCAR than modern dance, more boxing than ballet, and more than most people can handle "in this dizzying, inspirational self-help" books (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
