Ouroboros Shadow Pictures Recommended

When: Sat., Feb. 21, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $10

Light, Dark, and Drama

A shadow is just a shadow, except when it's fighting crime on 1930s radio serials or, like Ouroboros Shadow Pictures, bending light into sculptural art and stories. The theater company, which consists of shadow-conjurer Alisa Javits and musician Adam Lipsky, most recently brought Russian folk tales to life using paper figures, props, and even humans in Vasilisa. Now the company is debuting short vignettes, created over a few weeks on tiny Martha's Vineyard off the coast of Massachusetts, with visiting artists Nina Violet, Milo Silva, and Justin Taylor. Ouroboros Shadow Pictures is also shadow dancing on Sunday at La Peña Cultural Center, 3105 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley.

Ouroboros Shadow Pictures takes the stage at 8 p.m. at Intersection for the Arts, 925 Mission St., Suite 109, S.F. $10;

  • 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.'"
