Street Waltzing 

Wednesday, May 1 2013
Comments
The 24th Street corridor in the Mission District has changed a lot in recent years — SF Weekly just did a cover story on the neighborhood’s evolution. But two things that haven’t changed are a reverence for the area’s murals, and a strong tradition of community theater. See them both in action at Epiphany Productions’ and Brava Theater’s collaboration Baile en Calle: The Mural Dances. Baile en Calle begins as a walking tour of 24th Street murals, then becomes performance art, with five site-specific dance performances along the way. The mural history is provided by Precita Eyes Muralists Association, and the performances range from the sonic dance theater of Epiphany to the modern folkloric movements of Cuicacalli Escuela de Danza. Also on the bill are youth activists and neighborhood favorites Loco Bloco. And, as a bonus, another great Mission District tradition will be on display Sunday: partying for Cinco de Mayo! Expect fireworks.
Sun., May 5, 12:15, 1, 1:45 & 11:30 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.'"
