Open House 

Wednesday, Jul 28 2010
Brenda Way, KT Nelson, and Kimi Okada run a tight ship, and it's a good thing. ODC Dance is an empire, encompassing a contemporary dance company, a huge school, a dancers' clinic, and the soon-to-be-reopened theater. Maybe best of all is its raucously joyful in-house dance exercise program, Rhythm & Motion, whose motto is "Everybody Dance Now." The phrase could accurately represent the whole organization, whose healthful, fun, democratic approach is extremely refreshing in the normally snotty, starvation-oriented, elitist dance world. It's very San Francisco, as a matter of fact. The world-class professional company's popular annual program, the ODC Summer Sampler, invites you to the airy, welcoming "commons" inside the school for wine and hors d'oeuvres before taking in recent choreography by Way and Nelson.
July 30-31, 6:30 p.m.; Sat., July 31, 4:30 p.m., 2010

  • 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.'"
