Joe Goode Performance Group's Still Standing

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Still Standing is Joe Goode’s latest dance theater work incorporating his signature combustion of movement, word, song, and audience interaction. 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 that recently completed a $4.3 million restoration. Designed by Peter R. Schmidt for William and Bertha Haas, it survived the 1906 earthquake and fire, and remained in the Haas family until 1973, after which it was entrusted to the San Francisco Heritage to serve as the organization’s headquarters.

“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,” says Joe Goode. Still Standing asks ‘What do we want to become? Can we be bold enough to reinvent ourselves?’

Still Standing features original music by musician/composer Ben Juodvalkis, in addition to a number of other musical collaborators, including Tassiana Willis, Lila Blue and Shawna Virago. In an effort to highlight the central role music plays in Joe Goode’s work, every Thursday evening will also include a post-show musical performance. Performances will take place July 12 (Tassiana Willis); July 19 (artist TBD), July 26 (Shawna Virago) and August 2 (Ben Juodvalkis).
