All Aboard

Happening at a string of neighborhood locations and delivering its audiences there by streetcar, San Francisco Trolley Dances is unique among local festivals. Choreographers and their companies present site-specific dances at spots near various Muni stops on the T-line, with theater artists acting as tour guides. The two-hour tour will start at the Bay View Boat Club, at Mission Bay, where performances will occur. It will conclude in Bayview-Hunters Point, where dancers will appear at Mendell Plaza and elsewhere. The best part? The sole cost is the Muni fare. Inspired by a San Diego event, the festival is put together by Epiphany Productions’ Kim Epifano, who aims to call attention to the irreplaceable character of San Francisco’s neighborhoods at a time when the city is changing dramatically. Participating companies include Amy Seiwert’s Imagery, Byb Chanel Bibene’s Kiandanda Dance Theater, Valerie Gnassounou-Bynoe’s Yameci Dance Company, and others. Maps are available for those who chose to ride a bike or walk.

  • 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.'"
