Innovative Bay Area Performers to Dance at CSUS

The San Francisco-based Joe Goode Performance Group will be on stage during the California State University, Sacramento eighth annual Festival of the Arts (April 1-9).

The dance troupe has received accolades from The New York Times for its touching yet humorous interpretation of how AIDS affects communities in the show Deeply There.

Their presentation will be on Tuesday, April 4 at 8 p.m. in the CSUS University Theatre. Joe Goode, a Bessie Award-winning dancer and choreographer, will give a free master class during the festival on Monday, April 3 at 11 a.m. in the CSUS DanceSpace in Solano Hall, room 1010.

Goode began synthesizing a genre of dance theater that combined text, gestures and humor in 1979. Since then he has earned critical acclaim and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, California Arts Council and from San Francisco's municipal arts funding agencies. His company includes Felipe Barrueto-Cabello, Marit Brook-Kothlow, Elizabeth Burritt and Jennifer Wright Cook.

Tickets are $15 general, $12 for students and seniors, and $8 for children 12 and under, and are available from the CSUS Central Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or at BASS.
