Elizabeth Streb has developed a Keynote lecture that uses video, images, drawings, calculations and quotes to illustrate her unique theory of action. In her demonstration, she presents this amalgam of information to simulate an action show without the tons of stuff (and the 12 people!) required for the show. Streb’s Keynote presentation deconstructs her approach to action, her theory and her process. It shows how humans can fly, how they land, and traces the lineage of STREB action-invention. It also addresses how a sentient audience ‘sees’ or experiences movement, and how we understand action on stage. How do we comprehend size, distance, speed and angle of viewing? Her demonstration shows the effect of the viewer’s own frame of reference on their perception of action. What are Action’s reference points? What are Movement’s “vanishing points”? The lecture is a fascinating discourse from one of the world’s freshest observers of everyday action.
