Joe Goode Performance Group -- now at the Old Mint building -- is Traveling Light and eloquent as ever

|
()
Joe Goode brings his eloquent choreography and sharp observation into a heart of American capital: San Francisco's Old Mint

The carefully-honed Traveling is a very special vehicle for Goode's excellent dancers-actors-singers, who are well supported by the additional cast. At one point Cloidt gives a quartet a four-part a cappella harmony, and they sail through it with ease. Goode badly wants the world to be a better place, but that's not why we keep watching him and listening to him. We go back because his work sings, dances, and speaks with rare eloquence. I think what we want — and get — is what Barrueto-Cabello hungered for: beauty.
