Akin to Greatness 

Wednesday, Feb 20 2008
No matter what you fancy modern dance should be, chances are at least one piece on a Robert Moses' Kin bill will satisfy your criteria. Too inquisitive to consign himself to any success-ensuring formula (acquaintances say they never see him without a new book in hand), Moses is known for his eclectic programming. A politically charged, text-laden number may follow a soaring, lyrical one, or perhaps something quirky and gestural. Robert Moses' Kin's 13th Annual Home Season is no exception, juxtaposing three new dances Moses calls his most personal and romantic in years with a piece about the legacy of medical experimentation on the underprivileged. Mercifully, audience members will have time to down a glass of wine at intermission in preparation for the final work, aptly named "Consent." Among the accompaniment for the more poetic first half is an original score by Moses himself, proving once again his fearless willingness to follow his creative instincts into whatever new territory they may roam.

  • 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.'"
