LV Dance Collective Recommended

When: Aug. 29-30, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $10-$20
The gestures we make, the objects we encounter, and the subtle arrangement of ourselves relative to the absences left open by the world all utter messages we have been training our entire lives to interpret, using the ciphers of place and culture. LV Dance Collective, co-directed by San Francisco State University graduates Kao Vey Saephanh and Martha L. Zepeda, explores cultural codes and how they shape identity in their first home season, CODE, developed as part of the Resident Artist Workshop at the Garage. In addition to their central inquiry on identity, Saephanh and Zepeda present Quest for Truth, which won the sjDANCEco ChoreoAward for Collaborative Choreography. The transfer of choreography to dancer, from dance to eye, develops meaning in transmission. Intercept the dialogue between choreographers who have traveled the coasts and countries and come together in our jigsaw city.

  • 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.'"
