Stalling Death 

Wednesday, Mar 5 2014

This age has allowed us to split our lives into multiple semblances, to live our analog lives alongside digital personae, to consider the value of our lives in terms of page views, likes, and bitcoins against the boundlessness of love and the finitude of money. We want to believe in second lives and second chances, almost more than we want to live our first. We want to believe that, done well enough, our little lives can linger past their natural end, like Lazarus did. Internationally renowned choreographer Stephen Petronio's Like Lazarus Did makes its West Coast premiere at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Petronio's rigorously technical movement is set to an electro-acoustic score inspired by the slave spirituals of composer Son Lux. While suspended above the stage, visual artist Janine Antoni meditates within the "living set" of one of her own sculptures.

  • 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.'"
