Joe Goode Performance Group Brings The Rambler to Kingsbury Hall (SLC: Feb 25)

Press Release

Joe Goode Performance Group Brings The Rambler to Kingsbury Hall

February 10, 2012: Award-winning dance-theater company Joe Goode Performance Group will bring their most recent production, The Rambler, to Kingsbury Hall for one night only on Saturday, February 25 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $19.50 - $29.50 and are available by calling 801-581-7100 or vising www.kingtix.com. (Audience note: This performance contains mature content and themes; it may not be appropriate for all audiences.)

The company has also invited two University of Utah students to perform in the production. Kylie Christensen and Daniel Mont-Eton, both of whom are students in the U’s Modern Dance Department, will be featured in the evening’s performance.

The Rambler is the classic story of the journey. Not the kind of journey that comes out of a mission or a goal, but the result of a restless, peripatetic soul who can’t stay put. At his best, the rambler is acting out of discomfort with the status quo; he is a renegade (think of all of those Clint Eastwood westerns). But perhaps it is also true that the rambler is on a quest for self knowledge. (Clint Eastwood meets Siddhartha?)

Joe Goode Performance Group’s innovative form of dance-theater is accessible, personal, and explores unabashed emotional terrain with humor and honesty. Using text, voice, and high velocity movement, JGPG blurs the line between theater and dance to make work that is thoughtful, groundbreaking, and deeply felt. Joe Goode (choreography and direction) is a choreographer, writer, and director widely known as an innovator in the field of dance for his willingness to collide movement with spoken word, song, and visual imagery. He was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 2007, and the United States Artists Glover Fellowship in 2008.
