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.
