Making Conversation 

Wednesday, Jul 3 2013

A couple invites another couple over for dinner; only one of them shows up. Now: Yes...and. For those not familiar, the practical and philosophical basis of improvisation is the "yes, and" rule which dictates that one should accept any scenario presented to them, and then add to it. Awkward Dinner Party puts both its performers and audience in the aforementioned premise, cajoling all into revealing uncomfortable truths and running with them to keep the improvised play going. The show has run over a weekend sporadically over the last few years and past audience members commend it for the cast's ability to keep it together as plot points run wild and scenes become increasingly unrelated.

  • 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.'"
