Extreme Action to Perform at Olympics 2012 [VIDEO]

Streb Extreme Action performers have been appearing at various landmarks across London, catching spectators off guard with their spontaneity and daring moves. The performance, choreographed by founder Elizabeth Streb, is called "Surprises: Streb." Elizabeth Streb says the performance is designed to show the human body being pushed to its limits. "Streb" is a sudden explosion of human energy and art demonstrated through dare-devil feats of intense athleticism. 

Regarding the addition of the new and unique performance, director of the London 2012 Festival, Ruth Mackenzie, says "Streb is a wonderful and inspiring element of the 12-week UK-wide festival celebrating the culmination of the Cultural Olympiad. We're in the middle of a truly amazing series of events."
