Joe Goode Performance Group presents The Resilience Project, a collaborative project between JGPG and The Contemporary Jewish Museum, which aims to explore how we as humans deal with trauma, using storytelling and performance as a way of finding universality and strength in the face of adversity.
The Resilience Project performance, to be performed in The CJM’s Goldman Hall, is based on the lived experience of veterans, including many Bay Area veterans. The work draws on the stories of of veterans from the San Francisco VA Downtown clinic and the SFVA, Bob Basker 315 AL Post & Veterans for Peace chapter 69. Their stories, workshopped with JGPG in fall 2018, tell of the physical and emotional wounds of serving in the armed forces, focusing on recovery, resilience, and the ongoing process of adjustment to civilian life. The stories become the verbatim text for the staged work in which words, movement, gesture, and song collide in a visceral exploration of how we as humans deal with trauma and find strength in adversity.
