Streb Extreme Action performers will appear at landmarks around the city, taking spectators by surprise with their feats.
The performance – called 'Surprises: Streb' – is designed as a sudden explosion of human energy and art that appears out of the blue.
Choreographed by Streb founder Elizabeth Streb, the performance will show the human body being pushed to its limits through dare-devil feats of extreme athleticism.
