Together Again 

Wednesday, May 28 2014

Choreographers Todd Eckert and Nol Simonse look to physics and group dynamics for their seventh annual Shared Space concert. Eckert premieres Force Field, a piece that examines external ballistics as a metaphor for the trajectories of the individual human life and its random encounters with forces exerted by other bodies. "Often, before we ever reach our destination, our route becomes ever more circuitous and meandering," he explains. In contrast, Simonse's new work What's Important Is Not Always focuses on the relationships created by acting in groups, whether the sober protocols of business or the clandestine dealings of secret societies. A second piece by Simonse, Mistakes and Gifts, addresses the continued issue of AIDS from the perspective of a gay man. Though independent in background and process, the shared evening by the two choreographers has become a tradition in juxtaposition.

  • 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.'"
