Dance Emergency 

Wednesday, May 4 2011
Bianca Cabrera is a really, really, really accomplished dancer. She trained in the Martha Graham technique, for one thing, and anyone who’s even tried that shit can tell you it’s like the military of dance. A person performing Graham technique has ideal musculature, especially in the feet, and isolation control to the point of being able to pulse a kidney without anything else moving. Cabrera also trained with the mighty mighty Alvin Ailey company, and though she came to us from Seattle, she has already performed with local powerhouse Kim Epifano. At “Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!” Cabrera’s artistic residency takes the form of a series of Wednesday shows named Gorge-ous (missed this one, it was May 4); tonight’s show, Camp Songs; and the last two, May I be Frank? and Dance off! Hands On! They are, she promises, about “showgirls, cowgirls, boygirls,” and more.
Wednesdays, 9 p.m. Starts: May 11. Continues through May 25, 2011

  • 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.'"
