Fly Girls 

Wednesday, Jul 30 2008
Jo Kreiter's Flyaway Productions dance company is famous for aerial productions in which dancers rappel and climb as often as they twirl. It's tough, frightening work, not for sissies -- and the company is made up entirely of women. Obviously, they're great role models, and at "Truth Tellers," audiences can see the result of an intense collaboration between activist-minded teenage girls and the strong women of Flyaway. Using the physical aspects of dance to examine political problems, Kreiter and the young dancers contribute choreography that addresses media consolidation, on-campus military recruitment, and other issues girls think could use some improvement.

  • 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.'"
