Extreme Action Heroes

Yesterday the London Festival 2012 kicked off with choreographer Elizabeth Streb and "Extreme Action Heroes" from her New York Streb Action Dance Company. They bungee jumped off the Millennium Bridge, abseiled down City Hall (above), dangled in front of the National Theatre, climbed an apparatus in front of the National Gallery and finally flew around the London Eye at night (CLICK). All this tomfoolery was commissioned by Mayor Bouncy Boris and paid for by Arts Council England, the National Lottery and the Department of Culture, Media and Sport.
