It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane -- It’s a Dance Troupe 

Wednesday, Sep 7 2011
Project Bandaloop, purveyor and innovator of aerial dancing, today kicks off its 20th season with a preview of its latest work, Bound(less). The dancers alight on the sides of buildings, sheer cliffs, tipped-over mattresses, and on each other’s bodies with unearthly movements. Crane your neck and get a load of these original dance works whose choreography takes only occasional interest in the earth beneath our feet. The wildly muscled dancers float and glide, perpetrating unthinkable acts of gravitational defiance. It is impossible not to smile --with significant incredulity -- at what these talented dancers can do while tethered to a harness and line at the top of a building. See it, believe it, and make plans to watch the full show.
Thu., Sept. 8, 12:30 p.m.; Fri., Sept. 9, 5 p.m., 2011

  • 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.'"
