Back again with my infrequent Art Friday posts.
Why them? Joe Goode is a story teller making incredible work in the San Francisco Bay Area. His work is a mix of beautiful contemporary modern and release technique dance merged with speaking and voice. The merge of dance with spoken word can be a precarious line to walk – with much work coming out as dance with odd little spoken bits or a play with dance parts. Joe has managed to balance the worlds well enough that the words and songs inform the dance and the dance informs the words and songs.
For those of you not in the dance fields – Joe Goode’s work is both challenging and accessible at the same time. Check out his work on his site and there is a great clip of him discussing his work that was part of the Artists in Exile series.
