Toying with the laws of physics: Elizabeth Streb’s latest dance performance

I’m not too fond of falling off three-story buildings, either. The laws of physics can be so unforgiving. But two weeks ago I went to choreographer Elizabeth Streb‘s latest work, "Run Up Walls," in which dancers slammed into panes of glass without uttering a single expletive and dove from a truss 30 feet high as though they were flopping onto a bed.

Rather than bemoan the laws of physics, Streb celebrates them. Knowing how the human body responds to impact, her dancers have figured out how to do things that seem superhuman. I heard about Streb’s work last month from Harvard physicist Lisa Randall, who has acquired some renown in artistic circles for her opera inspired by the concept of extra spatial dimensions. Streb distinguishes her work from ballet and modern dance, which, she says, seek to camouflage the forces of nature. The parkour-like acrobatics weren’t even my favorite parts of her show.
