They say it takes three weeks to break a habit, and the third annual KUNST-STOFF Arts Fest gives you three-and-a-half to take dance classes, participate in workshops on choreography and creative-intuition, and attend performances loosely centered on the theme "Inhabit," May 15-June 7. Curated by KUNST-STOFF artistic director Yannis Adoniou, events feature local and visiting artists working in dance, new media, technology, film, and more.

"I believe in responsibility," explains Adoniou about the performers. "The intimate space is meant to show the impact of the artist, not props, lights, and costumes." With 14 nights of performances by companies such as ALTERNATIVA, Ate9dANCEcOMPANY, Sara Shelton-Mann, and KUNST-STOFF's residents artists, as well as free community events meant to encourage dialogue, collaboration, and experimentation, the KUNST-STOFF Arts Fest provides material and inspiration to alter your beginning or professional artistic practice.

KUNST-STOFF Arts Fest runs May 15 through June 7 at KUNST-STOFF Arts, 1 Grove St, S.F. Tickets are up to $15. Fest pass for any eight evenings is $88. For details about events, visit

  • 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.'"
