Don’t Just Watch 

Wednesday, Mar 17 2010
Beth Fein felt confined. “What if ‘dance’ didn’t only happen inside buildings with the word ‘dance’ on them?” we imagine her saying to herself. “What if it were more sort of, I don’t know, celebratory, even anarchistic, or at least more informal? More fun?” She’s a lady who makes things happen, and thus was born Dance Anywhere. As you can probably guess from the name, it’s a free-for-all, coordinated in the sense that the fun part is in the coordination: Some time zone information is helpful, since the encouraged dancing is to take place at the same exact hour, whether you are in Namibia, Iceland, or under the Stars and Stripes. Thus, at noon, you may samba, perform entrechats en l’air, boogaloo, freak, Charleston, tap, samba, clog, or pole dance in excellent company. Facing East Dance and Music company takes the Asian Art Museum, Kara Davis and Dancers got SFMOMA, and Fein herself (along with a lot of friends) appears at Togonon Gallery, among notable local coordinates.

  • 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.'"
