In 2003, Joe Goode -- San Francisco's influential maven of dance theater -- announced that he was embarking on a trilogy "about the extraordinary dimensions of ordinary people."
The first installment, "Folk," was business as usual for the Joe Goode Performance Group: a linear story of rural disaffection and redemption, full of campy humor, lullaby melodies and a faint whiff of condescension toward its more unsophisticated characters, masked as reverence for their "simple" ways. It was funny and thoughtful; it was the Goode everyone already knows and loves.
