Queer Emergence 

Wednesday, Nov 20 2013

To remain on the cutting edge, artists need a safe place to experiment – somewhere to try new work and show unpolished pieces in a supportive environment. To truly fly high, sometimes we have to remove the fear of falling, and that's what makes events like The News: Fresh, Queer Performance so important. The News is a monthly salon for the best voices emerging from the city's queer performance art scene. It was created by the ubiquitous collaborator Kolmel WithLove, who has screened films in the Frameline Film Festival and performed all across town, from leather bars and living rooms to CounterPULSE and The Garage. This month's edition of The News is curated by dancer and performance artist Jesse Hewit. It features new work from "anti-dance" maker and writer Abby Crain, the musical drag duo Bellows, and the "body-positive, age-positive, sex-positive" dance troupe SexiTude, among others.

  • 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.'"
