Joe Goode Performance Group: 'The Resilience Project' Performance

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The Resilience Project is a unique theatrical dance performance that examines human trauma and the ability to be resilient. A collaboration between the Joe Goode Performance Group (JGPG) and local veterans, The Resilience Project combines text from interviews with veterans with original songs and movement. The work aims to give voice to the participating veterans, amplifying their feelings, insights, and stories of resilience. Following the performance there will be a Q&A with Artistic Director Joe Goode, a veteran, and JGPG dancers.

The Resilience Project began in the fall of 2018 as a series of classes for veterans called Movement for Humans at the Veterans Building in San Francisco. Movement for Humans is a practice designed by Artistic Director Joe Goode that promotes the mind-body connection, with a focus on easeful movement and breath. After participating in the classes, the members of the group were interviewed about their physical and emotional wounds from war, their recovery, and their ongoing process of adjustment. Their responses and stories have become woven into this public, staged performance at The CJM, which brings together words, movement, gesture, and song into a moving presentation of the participants' profoundly moving stories.

The mission of the JGPG is to promote understanding, compassion, and tolerance among people through the innovative use of dance and theater, as interpreted by the artistic vision and work of Joe Goode. The company is committed to opening audiences' minds to the limitless potential of where and how performance can be experienced.

"I want to make 'human scale' dances. By human in scale, I mean placing the emphasis on the unglamorized body, the body in more intimate moments, when it is fallible or agitated or inept. My intent is not to create merely pedestrian movement, but to make dynamic movement that is a combination of gesture and partnering."

-Joe Goode, Founder and Artistic Director of JGPG
