Miyo's Dance of the Dead 

Wednesday, Sep 9 2009
The Dandelion Dance Theater is known for mixing things up: Dancers in wheelchairs, live music composed and performed by dancers, and choreography set to yelling are standard with this gang. But with Mutt Chapters One and Two, company directors Kimiko Guthrie and Eric Kupers mix kimonos and cowboy boots. Have they gone too far this time? A recent run in New York City was well-reviewed, but still, that was the Big Apple. How will audiences react to country music mixed with live Japanese narration here in the 7X7? The plot (contemporary dance and plot? Another wacky combo by DDT.) concerns the afterlife of a Japanese-Redneck, aka a girl born to a World War II internee and a Texas prison guard; hence the title.

  • 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.'"
