“In a time of such disconnection produced by our constant contact with technology and abrasive politics, working with JGPG gave my students an opportunity to tune into themselves in a new way, and more importantly, to tune into each other. Their work builds on human kindness and truly seeing one another.”
– Jessy Kronenberg, Dance Program Director, El Cerrito High School
The Joe Goode Performance Group education program began in 2012 with the certainty that people of all ages have important and illuminating things to say, questions to ask, and ways to creatively contribute. JGPG offers its young community the opportunity to train with company members and create original dance theatre works using JGPG’s innovative creative methodologies. We offer techniques that tune, align, and entrain the body to itself and its surroundings with the understanding that community building, empathy promotion, social awareness and engagement all start within ourselves in our immediate physical experience of being embodied. The JGPG youth programming is created to facilitate a vibrant, age appropriate learning experience guided by the following goals:
Fri-Sat, Sep 28-29, 7:30PM
Joe Goode Annex
$15-25, Free for children under 10
We shed, we transform, we stay rooted, and we soar.
The young performers inSea Changeengage deeply with life’s questions surrounding love, loss and the profound endurance of joy.
Sea Changeis the inaugural full-length dance theater work directed by JGPG company members and teaching artists of JGPGs Inspired Bodies Youth Education Program. The work is created in collaboration with the young performers of San Francisco Arts Education Project as part of SFArtsEd’s 50th Anniversary Season.
