Water Bodies 

Wednesday, Jul 17 2013

Bandaloop, the vertical San Francisco dance troupe directed by Amelia Rudolph and Rachael Lincoln, brings its intrepid acrobatics to Fort Mason this week in a new work, Harboring. Drawing on the venue's extensive history since the Civil War as a coastal defense post, a harbor for army transport and cargo ships, and headquarters for the National Park Service, Harboring has dancers springing from rigs that suspend their whirling bodies from walls, shipping containers, and piers. Audience members are asked to travel through the venue with the dancers, creating a scene of constant movement that illustrates the transitions — arrival, departure, war, ecological change, and the shifting of generations — that characterize this storied outpost by the sea.

July 18-21, 8:30 p.m.; Sat., July 20, 2 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.'"
