Dance Theatre of San Francisco, one of the city's newest contemporary dance companies, introduces itself to the public in "Debut", Oct. 11-13 at ODC Theater. Combining the forces of four local choreographers with international résumés, Dance Theater of San Francisco promises a mixed bill of world premieres and a stable of balletic, athletic dancers. Choreographers include former Paris Opera Ballet dancer Sandrine Cassini and Erik Wagner, previously with the San Francisco Ballet, who are already familiar to San Francisco audiences through the works they have created independently and for the LINES Ballet training program. Brazilian born Marcos Vedoveto, resident choreographer of the Connecticut Ballet, and Lesa Dusich, director of Reno Dance Company, round out the program. The company, directed by Napoles Ballet General Manager Annabelle Henry and containing a hearty portion of the same dancers, bills its repertoire as "eclectic" and "ever-changing" — fair words for a city in love with dance.

Oct. 11-12, 8 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 13, 2 & 7 p.m., 2013

  • 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.'"
