Dancing of the Stars 

Wednesday, May 30 2012
If the city’s dance arts community were to form a rock ’n’ roll-style supergroup, it might look something like the choreographers and performers who have assembled for the charitable night dubbed the Get in Front Performance. San Francisco Ballet soloists Garen Scribner and James Sofranko culled superior members from their company as well as colleagues from Smuin Ballet, Amy Seiwert’s Imagery, Zhukov Dance Theatre, Ballet San Jose, and Margaret Jenkins Dance Company, among others, for a presentation of ballet as well as contemporary dance styles built from the collaborative choreography of the various company directors. The evening of original movement includes a silent auction and afterparty. It benefits the Cancer Prevention Institute of California’s efforts to “get in front of cancer,” making it a worthy consideration not only for local dance enthusiasts but for those seeking an introduction to the diverse scene.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
