It’s a Long Way 

Wednesday, Apr 14 2010
La Semilla Caminante/The Traveling Seed, a storytelling performance about traveling, highlights immigrant and indigenous women arriving in and living on the West Coast. It uses indigenous myth bolstered by videos and audio recordings gathered by artist-activists Cherríe Moraga, Celia Herrera-Rodriguez, and Alleluia Panis. The story moves between magical mystical and documentary via their images, culled from indigenous ceremonies held throughout the country. The performers use live music, dance, and other hot moves to bring the original script alive; La Colectiva sponsors a Portrait Day in conjunction with the event, which invites women to write a letter, attach a photo, and send it off for Mother’s Day.

  • 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.'"
