No Wallflowers Allowed 

Wednesday, Jul 3 2013

Kim Epifano's Epiphany Productions Sonic Dance Theater is best known for its annual free Trolley Dances. But the group will bring dance to another San Francisco landmark next week, when the Victorian glass and wood greenhouse in Golden Gate Park becomes a stage for Botany's Breath, a site-specific work that leads audience members through the museum of rare tropical plants. With music composed by Peter Whitehead and performed with Norman Rutherford, as well as video projections by Ellen Bromberg and Ben Estabrook, Botany's Breath explores the spiritual, social, historical, and scientific dimensions of the conservatory's collection. Featuring eight dancers, the work is both celebratory and cautionary of our symbiotic relationship with the plant kingdom. Audience members will be guided in small groups for rare nighttime look at the Conservatory.

July 10-13, 7:30 & 9 p.m., 2013

  • 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.'"
