Pioneering dancer-choreographer explores the theme of 'Hometown'

ACTOR, DANCER, director and choreographer Joe Goode was drawn from New York to San Francisco 25 years ago by the spirit of adventure. Now he has a university job, a dance studio and a house in Berkeley, but he still knows about the yearning for home.

That's the theme he explores in "Hometown," a dance, theater and video production that premieres Friday at Yerba Buena Center Theater in San Francisco. The piece follows "Grace" on the program, which is the final work of the Joe Goode Performance Group's "Folk" trilogy.

REVIEW
Joe Goode finds a safe place to end trio in 'Hometown'
Rachel Howard, Special to The Chronicle

Monday, June 13, 2005

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.

'Hometown' is where the heart is

By Mary Ellen Hunt

TIMES CORRESPONDENT


There's no place like home, but where and what is "home," exactly? This is the question posed by the Joe Goode Performance Group in the troupe's engrossing new work "Hometown," which had its premiere on Friday night at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

A tightly focused and gently provocative work, "Hometown" represents the culmination of Goode's three-part series about life in America that started with the 2003 "Folk" and continued with last year's "grace," which opens the program.
