Ready and Rowdy 

Wednesday, Sep 4 2013

Get ready for a rambunctious evening of dance when the four performance-long West Wave Dance Festival launches at Z Space. There will be a Dance Mission Theater-curated program called The Beat of 24th and Mission with its own multiethnic, all-woman Dance Brigade and Grrl Brigade, as well as transgender choreographer Sean Dorsey, Afro-Cuban dance from Ramon Ramos Alayo's Alayo Dance Company, goth-robot doll troupe Anna and the Annadroids, Duniya Dance and Drum Company, and contemporary dance company Nicole Klaymoon's Embodiment Project. The dances on the bill are guaranteed to make some noise. Rounding out the evening are hip-hop, taiko, and political dance. The festival continues in three more performances, each with a unique lineup: four commissioned choreographers at ODC's Studio B on Oct. 5, five unexpected pairs of choreographers assigned to create new work together at Z Space on Oct. 21, and four choreographers of contemporary ballet at Z Space on Oct. 28.

Mon., Sept. 16, 8 p.m., 2013

  • 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.'"
