Liss Fain Dance, San Francisco's own acclaimed contemporary company, premieres the latest in its signature series of performance installations, The Imperfect Is Our Paradise, inspired by William Faulkner's stream-of-consciousness novel The Sound and the Fury. Fain's innovative productions provide a new kind of interactive arts experience, as the audience can choose to either stay seated or move around and check out the set, sound environment and dancers from a variety of different viewpoints. This new work by Fain and composer Dan Wool delves into the evolution of relationships through solo, duo and group dances, while incorporating text from Faulkner's book as part of the rhythmic landscape.

“Best Comedy Group of 2007” —SF Weekly
Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, critically acclaimed sketch comedy group Killing My Lobster presents its first-ever all-female sketch comedy show. Killing My Lobster for the Very First Time is a collection of scenes and shenanigans all about “first time” experiences—from first kisses to first alien abductions and more.
Directed by longtime KML member Shaye Troha, KML for the Very First Time features a cast of some of the Bay Area’s best young comedic actresses: Fontana Butterfield (Shotgun Players, KML’s world premiere Hunter Gatherers), Erin Carter (Exit Theater’s Chemical Imbalance and KML Saves the Day_), Melanie Case (_Hunter Gatherers and many KML shows), Emily Jordan (SF Shakespeare Festival’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream_), and Sarah Mitchell (_KML Faces the Music and many more) and Leslie Waggoner.
Killing My Lobster is a Bay Area non-profit theater and film production company proclaimed “Best Comedy Group” by the editors of SF Weekly. This past season, KML presented the world-premiere sketch comedies KML Faces the Music and KML Saves the Day. Last summer, their critically acclaimed world-premiere production of Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s Hunter Gatherers received an extended three-month run at San Francisco’s Thick House Theater and was proclaimed by the San Francisco Chronicle as “a major achievement for Killing My Lobster.” The play went on to win both the Will Glickman Award for the best new play of the Bay Area (2006) and the Steinberg Award for the best new play produced outside of New York City that year.
Hailed by the Chronicle as “the closest thing we have to Second City” and heralded as “an orgy of comic genius” by Comedy Central, KML has created original work for HBO, is a two-time winner of the Best of the Fringe Award at the SF Fringe Festival and was voted “Best Comedy Group” by the San Francisco Bay Guardian. The group also produces the annual Hi/Lo Film Festival (www.hilofilmfestival.com) and has created numerous award-winning short films taking home the Golden Spire Prize at the SF International Film Festival.
