Go With The Flow 

Wednesday, Mar 26 2014

It may sound counterintuitive, but the hottest trend in juggling these days is to lower the number of balls to one or two. Instead of trying to toss as many things as possible, it's all about finding new ways to move familiar objects. This style was first mastered by MacArthur Fellow Michael Moschen, who was the real hand rolling the ball back and forth behind David Bowie during that famous scene in Labyrinth. That scene was most of the world's introduction to the "flow arts." But since that time, the style has taken the Bay Area juggling world by storm. The Flow Show will feature the best of this new crop of manipulation artists, as they roll, twirl, and dance with hoops, balls, staffs, poi, buugeng, and plenty of other props you've probably never heard of before.

April 4-5, 8 p.m.; Sun., April 6, 7 p.m., 2014

  • 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.'"
