In Otherwise, the stories of immigrant and refugee youth are projected from the shadows onto a theater stage, and into the hearts and minds of audiences. The youth writers of Spotlight Projects have written texts which focus on how it feels to exist “in between worlds,” when identity, belonging, and security feel out of reach. The stories offer us a glimpse into their history, and their ‘now’ realities. The stories of Amjad, Euridice, Ivan, Joshua, Nahel, Oscar, and Sharaavi will be brought to the stage by an international cast of youth writers and professional theatremakers. *Studio B*

  • 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.'"
