You Show Me Yours

Constraining the creative process is all the rage: Two-days-to-make-a film festivals, monthlong novel-writing events, and now this: "ShortLived 2.0", a three-month-long playwriting competition. Refereed by PianoFight productions, which apparently likes to capitalize the middle consonant of its titles, the event means a lot of brand-new short plays for us to judge. Audiences are given scorecards, just like the mean people on TV. It continues every weekend until the Championship Weekend, June 26-27, when the four winningest plays vie for the chance at a fully produced run spanning one month. Last year’s winner, Daniel Heath, is back to defend his position. Can he win again? It’s just like reality TV, only … real, and smarter, and better, and concerned with a legitimate art form.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: April 10. Continues through June 27, 2009

  • 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.'"
