In 2003, STREB established the STREB LAB FOR ACTION MECHANICS (SLAM) in Brooklyn, NY, an artistic bastion for experimentation, interaction, education, and community. Ongoing programs include the PopAction School, the España-STREB Trapeze Academy, emerging artist programs, monthly teen and tween clubs, and community partnerships. Each year, about 10,000 people visit SLAM: 5,000 audience members, 1,000 students from toddlers to adults, 3,000 children from public schools, including at-risk youth, and hundreds of artists. On tour, STREB reaches thousands of national and international audience members. Through open rehearsals, ticket subsidy programs, scholarships, and community partnerships, we create access and inclusivity.
While SLAM is closed due to the Covid-19 crisis, we have open access to our programming through STREB Remote.
