Every performer knows there is no such thing as the perfect performance — in fact, there is no such thing as the same performance: anything that happens onstage shares with life the condition of never happening again. Choreographer Christy Funsch highlights the ephemeral nature of dance and the performing arts in her work-always-in-progress, she's near she's now she's nowhere, exhibited with five dancers at four times in three locations. With a sonic sculpture by Tamara Albaitis that creates a "sea kelp forest of sound" to aid the dancers in their exploration of memory and perception, the piece considers the effect of physical and emotional presence within a given time and place. Funsch, who has been working on the piece since its first showing in May, describes it as "deliberately under-produced" and meant to highlight process over product. Contemplate being present.

  • 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.'"
