“To admire an old picture is to pour our sensibility into a funeral urn instead of casting it forward with violent spurts of creation and action.” -- F.T. Marinetti, 1909

Hailing from the bay that brought you the Grateful Dead, Emperor Norton, and the iPod, San Francisco’s intermedia performance group DOUBLE VISION continues to crank the cogwheel by presenting dance, video, noise, speed, energy, and seismic activity for stage. Works range from world premiers of Three Canons and Mise en Scénes and Video Action Painting, to reconstructions of the Futurist sintesi Macchina del 3000 (The Love of Two Locomotives for the Station Master) and Macchina Tipograpfica. Throughout the evening’s performance, DOUBLE VISION connects art from the Internet Age to the dawn of the automobile while posing the question…what’s next?

Performances will present live dance, music and intermedia works for the stage. Attendees can also immerse themselves in installations before and after the performances in the gallery. On Sunday, Brooklyn-based experimental pianist, Shawn Onsgard and San Francisco’s own Wild Bill Wolter will entertain guests with an informal Piano Salon at 5:30pm. Bill Wolter will be joined by renowned San Francisco musicians John Ingle, Eric Hoagland, Jen Baker and Matt Ingalls. The Salon will afford attendees plenty of time to enjoy dinner before the dance concert. Also, join the artists for a special reception following Thursday evening's show.

DOUBLE VISION, led by Sean Clute and Pauline Jennings, is a group of dancers, musicians, video-artists, and performers. By experimenting with different methods of collaboration through the adaptation of social systems, transvergence of scientific models, and mapping of algorithmic structures, DOUBLE VISION unifies multifaceted art forms and ideas to cultivate innovative performances and provoke communication.
