Publicity photo for a four-part work by "radical choreographer" Elizabeth Streb. In interviews given around the time of the work's appearance, she described her aesthetic philosophy: "I have a certain discomfiture with achieving a bourgeois attitude toward existence. If you're on the edge, you're more awake and alert. Any time you settle into something the danger of unawareness pops up...It's very hard to override the technique you've been trained with—close to impossible..So I set up physical situations that are precarious and have elements of impossibility to them.
