Reserves and Prices

Time Machine is an exhilarating work of physics and force, dance and action that will entertain audiences of all ages. 

Extreme Action, a new art form invented by award-winning performer Elizabeth Streb, takes choreography beyond dance to defy gravity and pushes the human body to its limits. Using large-scale ‘Action Machines’, her dancers become ‘Action Heroes’ who thrill, scare and delight their audiences. 

Elizabeth Streb’s groundbreaking company, STREB EXTREME ACTION, has created the jaw-dropping spectacles around the world, moving from experimental dance to the cutting-edge of popular entertainment, including a 120-metre-high performance on the spokes of the London Eye for the 2012 Olympics. 

STREB EXTREME ACTION comes to Adelaide for the very first time with this breathtaking journey through Elizabeth Streb’s extraordinary career. 

With absolute precision they keep the audience in constant amazement, inducing gasps and increasing pulse rates with displays of full-force skill that combine gymnastic and athletic techniques with unexpected movements... This performance is a luxury not to be missed.

— North Brooklyn News 

[Elizabeth Streb] doesn’t so much make dances as choreograph obstacles for the body to navigate... The art is in the bold act itself and the physical precision it requires, as well as in the grace of the performers’ fearlessness.

— The New York Times
