STREB Emerging Artist Commissioning Program (EACP)


STREB, Brooklyn, New York, received $23,000 in support of the Emerging Artist Commissioning Program. Founder Elizabeth Streb invents action ideas that are archetypal, noticeable, and understandable. The outcome is a mixture of slam dancing, exquisite and amazing human flight, and wild action sport. STREB’s Emerging Artist Commissioning Program, housed at the company’s Williamsburg home SLAM, accepts proposals from movement-based artists, including choreographers, aerialists, and circus artists. The goal is to create a pool of artists who can capitalize on the resources distinct to SLAM so that, either literally or conceptually, they may use SLAM’s special and unusual characteristics and qualities to inspire new and exciting creative experiments. Selected artists receive commissions, time, space, and resources tailored to the nature and scope of their projects. They have opportunities to showcase their work and receive feedback from both Elizabeth Streb and audiences.
