Joe & the Process

The stunning Haas-Lilienthal house embodies so much of San Francisco’s progressive spirit of innovation and resilience. It’s a survivor, a place of respite, and a symbol of reinvention.Using real, written, and imagined stories from the dancers and musicians, Joe Goode explores how we find resilience, persist, and reinvent. The work transports audiences through San Francisco’s historic Haas-Lilienthal House, a mansion built in 1886. Still Standing asks: What do we want to become? Can we be bold enough to reinvent ourselves?

Just as this grand old house is still standing, the spirit of San Francisco as a place of alternative thinking, innovation, even reinvention, is still standing.

——Joe Goode.

The Haas-Lilienthal House

IMG_5185A10 (retouched)

The Haas-Lilienthal House embodies both the progressive spirit that distinguishes San Francisco’s cultural landscape and the Victorian grandeur of its built environment. Constructed in 1886 by Jewish immigrants, this Queen Anne gem was spared destruction in the 1906 Earthquake and Fire, and survives miraculously intact today as a site of national cultural and architectural significance.
