This summer San Francisco-based dance/theater master Joe Goode and his company members will present Nobody Lives Here Now, in collaboration with the renowned french string quartet, Quatuor Varèse.
The piece is based on a response to the ideas of a forgotten or disappearing biography of place of the body, and of love. Goode takes the viewer on a journey exploring the perception of self within the digital age, capturing both the magic of disappearance and the barrenness that it leaves behind. After the Festival premiere, Nobody Lives Here Now will receive its U.S. debut in San Francisco in Spring 2017.

The Resilience Project
Joe Goode Annex
December 2016 More information coming soon!
The Resilience project is derived from JGPG’s Human Kind performance series, an experimental performance series centered around the ways in which we are fallible and imperfect, using real stories from the community to drive the process of creation. The Human Kind process was then adapted into a residency format where Joe and the company interviews a specific group of participants and uses their individual responses and stories about resiliency to develop the text for a staged work that collides words and movement, gesture, and song into a visceral experience of the participants profoundly moving stories.
