Fluid Movements 

Wednesday, Apr 24 2013
Alonzo King LINES Ballet celebrates its 30th year as a leading light in contemporary ballet in its spring season. In a new collaborative work, King sets his lapidary choreog-raphy to music by Grammy-award winning double bassist and composer Edgar Meyer, performed before an illuminated wall of water created by Academy Award-winning fog and water specialist Jim Doyle. The program will also include excerpts of LINES Ballet repertoire from the past three decades, including King’s acclaimed Ocean (1994). King refers to his pieces as “thought-structures”; his 12 extraordinary dancers use their long-limbed virtuosity to embody works of cerebral abstraction that tran-scend the classical idiom. A special gala will be held April 20; post- and pre-performance talks with King and Meyer will be held April 21 and 24, respectively.
April 19-21; April 24-28, 2013

    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.'"
