Here's to you, Terry, for organising the benefit - a great thing to do. The juxtaposition with your dismissal has certainly raised a series of question marks in my mind regarding your treatment by the Company.

Hope the commission in Venezuala is going well and very best wishes for your future ventures.

Extreme Dance, Extreme Dispute


By DANIEL J. WAKIN
Published: July 23, 2007

When a dancer in Streb Extreme Action — a company that mixes kinetic daredevilry, stunts and modern dance — broke her back in a performance in May, a longtime member put out a call for contributors to come to a fund-raising evening.

Now that member, the associate artistic director Terry Dean Bartlett, finds himself out of the company. Mr. Bartlett has come forward to accuse its founder and director, Elizabeth Streb, of dismissing him for spreading negative publicity by announcing the fund-raiser.

But Ms. Streb denied that the firing had any connection to the fund-raiser and said that Mr. Bartlett had already crossed the line with improper behavior during the company’s public rehearsals and performances.

StreB(ed) Out

Wednesday, Jul 25 2007, 02:07

It's unusual for members of the dance fraternity to engage in open warfare, through the media, but that is what's happening between Terry Dean Bartlett
and Elizabeth Streb, the AD of Streb Extreme Action (yes, that's really what the company is called!)

I think it interesting that no one else does what this company does. Many other innovative companies spawn imitators, but not this company.

Any theories as to why that might be?
