Tech boom 

Wednesday, Mar 12 2014

While San Franciscans squabble over whether tech has ruined the city for artists, Kinetech Arts has been quietly forging a zone for citizens to play together. A pioneer of technology-based performance art, Kinetech Arts is celebrating a year of innovation with a performance, exhibit, and party. True to its collaborative spirit, the program also features local and international artists, including salsa classes by Tianne Frias and Mambo Groovin' Latin Dance Theater, a martial arts demonstration by the Taoist Center, video by Dutch artists Anastasia Kostner and Maarten van der Glas, photography, and more. Kinetech also presents an installation of visually delightful and occasionally hilarious interactive digital art, including technology previously featured at CODAME and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, as well as a sneak peek at 4SEE, a dance piece premiering at ODC Theater in July about surveillance and the dark side of our shiny future.

  • 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.'"
