Dr. Seuss’ Oh, the Places You’ll Go! was something we often turned to as we entered new stages in life. However, we realize things don’t always work as Dr. Seuss said they would -- the bitter reality being that life is not always 2-D psychedelic talking-fish wonderful. The next stop in understanding how to deal with change is this.placed. Created by Nina Haft & Company and Facing East Dance & Music, the dance piece is inspired by places as well as what the body remembers. It deals with the similar idea of finding comfort when we must leave home, however that’s defined -- though Sue Li Jue’s choreography points toward subjects far more intense than what most of us know, such as orphans from China and sweatshop workers. This.placed illustrates how we react to ourselves, and ultimately sensations and feelings that only the body knows. The dance piece will also feature choreography from Nina Haft, which are based on the work of flash fiction author Britta Austin.

  • 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.'"
