Real Rabbit 

Wednesday, Nov 20 2013

For parents looking for an alternative to the dozens of Nutcrackers popping up in every theater or for anyone craving a heartwarming, family-friendly afternoon of first-rate dancing, ODC's holiday ballet The Velveteen Rabbit is the perfect show. With ten children from the ODC School and the full company of artists, choreographer KT Nelson retells Margery Williams' 1922 story of a stuffed rabbit who dreams the love of his young owner will make him real. The ballet, set to music by Benjamin Britten and directed for the first time by ODC co-founder Brenda Way, is a sweet and spectacular tradition for all ages. As befits a show about a toy becoming a real rabbit, December 7 and 8 shows feature a rabbit education showcase headed by animal rescue organization SaveABunny.

Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 29. Continues through Dec. 15, 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.'"
