Join Joe Goode, Artistic Director and Founder of Joe Goode Performance Group (JGPG), for a dynamic conversation centered on movement, the body, and the role of voice and sound in dance, in response to the themes explored in "Show Me As I Want To Be Seen."
"Show Me as I Want to Be Seen" presents the work of groundbreaking French Jewish artist, Surrealist, and activist Claude Cahun (1894-1954) and her lifelong lover and collaborator Marcel Moore (1892-1972) in dialogue with ten contemporary artists to examine the complex and empowered representation of fluid identity.
Joe Goode is a choreographer, writer, and director widely known as an innovator in the field of dance for his willingness to collide movement with spoken word, song, and visual imagery. He was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 2007 and the United States Artists Glover Fellowship in 2008. In 2006, Goode directed the opera Transformations for the San Francisco Opera Center. His play Body Familiar, commissioned by the Magic Theatre in 2003, was met with critical acclaim. Formed in 1986, JGPG tours regularly throughout the United States, and has toured internationally to Canada, Europe, South America, Africa, and the Middle East. Goode is known as a master teacher; his summer workshops in "felt performance" attract participants from around the world, and the company's teaching residencies on tour are hugely popular. He is a member of the faculty of the University of California, Berkeley in the department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies.
