OF Yaks And Women

Loretta lurks on the cliffs and crags that line the coast of Half Moon Bay, gloomed over by a dim blur of fog. Loretta is a yak who, longing for a companion, discovers a fellow woolly pelt in a woman whose obsession with her fur coat matches her penchant for meandering over precipitous terrains in detour dance's newest film, Rawhide. Now in its fifth year of presenting dances and films that sweetly explore the quirks and idiosyncrasies that San Francisco loves to call its own, detour dance's home season at CounterPULSE also features the premiere of its first evening-length work, Filaments, a take on contemporary society's relentless pursuit of attention that takes the vogue artist's sassiest hair toss and tries it on a flock of rabid pageant queens. Rounding out an evening of pure indulgence is Jenny McAllister's piece that explores the untold story of sugar-glutted Hansel and Gretel.

  • 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.'"
