Outside the box 

Wednesday, Jun 18 2014

If there's one thing that characterizes a LEVYdance performance, it is the company's desire to challenge the gaze of the proscenium stage, whether it means putting dance in the alleyway outside its studio on Heron Street or leading audience members from room to room in the General's Residence at Fort Mason in last November's creative staging of ROMP. Their quest to defamiliarize dance continues in SOAR, which empties Z Space of its risers and uses the former cannery as a shifting set for audience and dancers alike, culminating in what they describe as a "choose your own adventure" experience, in which audience members will create their own narratives by selecting from simultaneous scenarios as they move freely through the venue. SOAR is the first work choreographed and directed by LEVYdance associate director Scott Marlowe, fresh from the success of starring in the 2013 dance film Test.

  • 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.'"
