Lines of Communication 

Wednesday, Jul 24 2013

One eye shut makes a line a lie. A line is a breadthless length, an infinity of points in one dimension. The ray is half a line, a lit-up lie, a wave or a particle made real by the machine of the eye. ODC's powerhouse dancing shows bodies at their limits, as the contemporary dance company tackles mathematics and more in its hourlong Summer Sampler. The program features the world premiere of resident choreographer Kimi Okada's Two If by Sea, a piece that investigates the subtle signals we use to communicate with each other; New York choreographer Kate Weare's The Light Has Not the Arms to Carry Us; and Triangulating Euclid, a collaborative work by Weare, K.T. Nelson, and ODC founder Brenda Way that explores Euclidean geometry and the human relationships created by lines, angles, and multiplanar space.

  • 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.'"
