Teatro de Vecinos 

Wednesday, Jul 1 2009
Mexican theater company Tutiatro is a wide-ranging but small troupe. It must be streamlined from traveling so much, having jetted to Venezuela, Colombia, France, and plenty of other far-off lands. At “Encuentro de Teatro,” the group performs a slate of four plays, with one, Cleopatra, for children. Local company La Tropa joins in to produce another, Orinoco, which finds a pair of dancers waking up to discover themselves mysteriously alone on a huge ship in the middle of the ferocious river of the same name. And this evening, Tutiatro performs Gustavo Ott’s play Fotomatón, a comedy of identity, and Una Golondrina de Madera by Liliana Valderrama, a sort of existential quandary for women. What makes the series especially rare is that everything is in Spanish, with English subtitles. We’re not sure why it seems unusual to see Spanish-language theater around here, but we’re glad about this little festival.

  • 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.'"
