Under the sea 

Wednesday, Jul 2 2014

One of the SF Fringe Festival's most delirious darlings, The Submarine Show, returns under the auspices of the FURY Factory Festival and it should not be missed. The story is simple: Two men wreck their vessel on the ocean floor. Confronted with the dangers of the deep, including a gregarious blowfish, they struggle to shore where riotous monkeys, peacocks, and audience members threaten their sanity. But the production is brilliant: Anchored in an impermeable world of imagination by the physical skills of Emmy Award-winning Slater Penney and former Cirque Du Soleil performer Jaron Hollander, Submarine immerses the audience in a rich, sidesplitting narrative without words, props, or sets. While this mime duo is far from silent – the players act as their own foley team, providing a cappella sound effects and warranted exclamations – it is testament to their talent that they walked away with the "Techies Choice" award, not to mention "Best in Fringe," using nothing but body and mind for special effects.

  • 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.'"
