Joe Goode Performance Group 30th Anniversary Home Season - Nobody Lives Here Now

June 22-24, 8:00pm


Joe Goode Performance Group, in association with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, celebrates three decades of innovative dance-theater and inspiring artistry.

The centerpiece of the celebration will be the world premiere of Nobody Lives Here Now, a poetic fable that mines questions of identity, aging, and disappearance as part of the fragile human condition. The piece tells the story of a fantastical world where the things that anchor us - home, culture, people - rapidly shift and erode, and the characters find themselves faced with sudden transformation. What happens when things vanish in an instant, when our vitality, place, and identity disappear? Nobody Lives Here Now is laced with JGPG's signature humor and song. It is highlighted by a fervent classical music score, performed live by Thalea String Quartet (the first-ever quartet in residence at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music) and an original set and video design by David Szlasa.

For three decades choreographer Joe Goode has been creating works about the human experience. Some of his landmark pieces will be included on the program as part of a retrospective of his choreographic career.

JGPG company dancers performing are Felipe Barrueto-Cabello, Marit Brook-Kothlow, Melecio Estrella, Andrew Ward, Patricia West and Molly Katzman. Original company member Liz Burritt and guest performer James Graham also make a special appearance for this anniversary celebration.

Additional anniversary events includes a performance as part of Dancers' Group's Rotunda Dance Series on Friday, June 2 at 12pm at City Hall and a performance by Thalea Quartet at the Joe Goode Annex, on Friday, June 16 at 7pm, hosted by GroupMuse.
