TICKETS ON SALE SPRING 2018
Our newest work will premiere at the Haas-Lilienthal House for one month in Summer 2018.
The stunning Haas-Lilienthal house embodies so much of San Franciscos progressive spirit of innovation and resilience. Its a survivor, a place of respite, and a symbol of reinvention for those who lived there.
The narrative of Still Standing is inspired by the history of the home, and the history of San Francisco as a place for re-invention. Audiences will be guided through the home to witness up close performers and performances in every room and hallway.
We will be working with a phenomenal group of local singer-songwriters to write an original score, including long-time collaborator Ben Juodvalkis, transgender music pioneer Shawna Virago, poet and singer Tassiana Willis, and 17-year old wunderkind Lila Blue. They are a notable group of talented and stunning individuals.
I’m attracted to irregular people, or really to the part of all of us that is irregular, or broken, or diminished or fallible. The part of us that stumbles and makes mistakes and is clumsy and awkward, even egregious in some way. I like to create not just theater experiences but immersive experiences… – Joe Goode
In 2009, Joe Goode Performance Group premiered Traveling Light, a site-specific performance at San Francisco’s Old Mint. Called “a tour de force” by the Chronicle, the work was revived in 2010 due to critical acclaim. Joe Goode and Joe Goode Performance Group are thrilled to work with SF Heritage again to activate another unique SF historic site.
…the unassuming Goode is no charlatan, but rather a beguiling spinner of tales of the human condition… – SF Chronicle
…an unrivaled expert at crafting an immersive experience that feels immediate, honest, and confidential. The great virtue of his style is its light-handed plainness. The choreography is elegant and uncluttered… – The Washington Post
