The Lied Center for Performing Arts has been awarded a $20,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for its upcoming project with the dance company, Streb.

The Lied Center and partners will present an interdisciplinary exploration with Streb in spring 2014. The project will involve UNL students from dance, theatre, gymnastics, architecture, and computer science and engineering, along with local K-12 students, teachers and community members. Streb company members will lead three days of residency activities in Lincoln, culminating in a public performance of “Forces” at the Lied Center.

UNL dancers and gymnasts will also lead student matinees and workshops based on Streb teaching techniques in local schools in spring and fall 2014.

Founded in 1985, Streb tours extensively throughout the United States and internationally. The company was featured at the 2012 London Olympics.
