    Recorded at Temescal Arts Center, Oakland, California. This was one of the most sexy, erotic, warm, juicy performances we ever did! Everybody participated, nobody left, a lot of nude dancing including a contortionist! What more could I want?! Aaahhhh, how can you tell if a performance was a success? Well, Saturday’s performance was the longest night in the two+ years of the Temescal series. And nobody left during the performance, which is probably a first in my forty years of doing performances. And when it was over, nobody wanted to leave. But that is usual. The audience was a real mix of straight and underground creatures in the full range. But everybody ended up nude, except for the former professor who had just been in the hospital. Even he said the performance loosened and opened him up. He provided the music for most of the night. A newspaper called the series a “variety.” I call that newspaper PSYCHIC because we even had a contortionist who did their [they didn’t liked the pronouns SHE and HER, preferring THEY /THEM] dance, which was actually one of the things I always have wanted in a performance. THEY actually danced twice… Once dressed… And then nude, pushing /risking THEMSELF while Nat sang and the professor played guitar. This risking dance rooted /anchored everything, made everything that came afterwards possible… Two Brothers rocking nude together for hours, the straight tree guy rocking nude on my lap… The whole room doing a very juicy explicit ritual of GESTURES [there are always surprises for me… Like I didn’t think LICK EACH OTHER’S EARS would be a controversial gesture, but what do I know?]… The whole room evolving into an explicit ritual of music making juicy fun dancing which all [including the corporate finance guy] melted into together. I pushed the explicit because the two booking women were there and I wanted to get everything out on the table so that we will have freedom to go even further in the future there. They loved it! So how do you know when a performance is a success? Well maybe when at the end of the night somebody says: "I was comforted by the fact that I was uncomfortable. Lately I had been wondering if I'd ever be able to feel uncomfortable again, so it was great to be able to come up against some barriers again." Audience person, 7/23/11, UZOF Now excuse me while I recover from doing three shows in four weeks! http://www.eroplay.com/Cave/uzof/uzof-jul2011/index.html

      Recorded at Temescal Art center, Oakland, California. This is the very first performance in the series under different titles [REALITY PLAYINGS, and THE UNCOMFORTABLE ZONES OF FUN and now RISK FOR DEEP LOVE ] which we have been doing for three years now, with a six month break for me to recover from almost dying. I just signed for the fourth year! This was my first time seeing the space... Which is why there are no color gels on the lights, no audience microphones, etc etc. But both Tomek and Kene-J aka MY SON were playing music in this one! They still do!

        This is another of those long laid back performances that on the surface nothing much seems to be happening... But then...

          A 48-HOUR PERFORMANCE BY FRANK MOORE FOR FADO'S "TIME TIME TIME" IN TORONTO, CANADA, AUGUST 27-29,1999. When Paul Couillard first invited Frank to perform at his festival TIME TIME TIME he told Frank that the series was inspired by Frank’s extended time performances. Frank said he would like to do a 72 hour performance for this series. This was almost two years before the performance was scheduled to happen. During that two year period Frank performed at a weeklong festival the WE FEST in Wilmington North Carolina after which he got pneumonia and was hospitalized and was very sick and had this 72 hour performance coming up in Toronto! So Frank changed it to a 48 hour performance, had Paul rent him a hospital bed and changed the name of the performance to DYING IS SEXY figuring if he died during the performance it would be on theme!

            This second night shows why I shouldn't have any pictures going into a performance. I thought we would continue going deeper into the tribal intimacy that was there the night before, erotic sexy exploring. But it quickly became extremely clear that was not to be. This second night was dealing with resistance, finding ways around blocks, dead ends, bitterness, etc. But considering all of that, it was a reasonably good piece. Hey, the promoter threatened to sue me... Always a good sign of effectiveness! Watch the first night's performance " The Intimate Passion: Audition" here: https://vimeo.com/27429573

              Recorded at the Center For Sex and Culture, San Francisco, California. The audience for this one was sweet [both genders, even the two street stand-up comedians]. They were basically ready to go deep into their dreams of how things should be. Some of them were already focused on doing this in their regular lives, especially the three who are in an art collective together. So it was relatively easy to get the tribal intimacy to the surface. This was further lubricated by the music by Tomek and the general open environment of THE CENTER FOR SEX AND CULTURE. There was even the deaf mute who has come to my performances several times before. He tends to root everything. But when we were preparing to go into physical rituals of intimacy, a guy released the virus of fear basically to call attention to himself and to sabotage things, as he admitted later. He took the mic and said he would not take his clothes off because of the video camera. Of course he has been coming to my performances for years, all of which were videod. Moreover I had an audience member undress the camera guy among other things to draw attention to the fact that he was videoing the performance. Although some people caught the virus and joined the band, the tribal body didn’t let the virus sidetrack the deepening joyful intimacy. This was especially true for one of the three from the art collective who rocked on my lap juicy human warmth without limits arousing pleasure prickly rubbing bodies together flowing into Linda smoothly becoming one body. So I would say we defeated fear at this performance! And what more can you ask of a performance? http://www.eroplay.com/Cave/cscoct2011/index.html

                This is the first half of a six hour performance. In my youth I did forty eight hour performances. I like long pieces because I could slowly dig down into the juicy erotic states of pleasure arousing magical play, much deeper than the shorter performances allow. So in this, after a couple of hours of building, tribal reality of nude bodies generating aroused melting deep dance bloomed! And just wait until you see what happens in the second half! [I don't know what happens!]

                    Recorded at Temescal Art Center, Oakland, California. Oh, we here are hurting, are recovering from weeks of multiple shows! Just this past week, we did three SHAMAN’S DEN shows and Friday at the new performance space Flux 53 in Oakland for the Los Angeles band Magick Orchids I was a guest vocalist. Btw, Flux 53 is a great theater (actually two performance spaces)… But bring your own P. A.! Then Saturday was another REALITY PLAYINGS. It is building, digging in to the meat. Actually the performance started for some of the audience members before they got to the Temescal. Of course this is always true, but is usually hidden. But THE TRAVELING CLUBHOUSE contacted me a couple of weeks ago about bringing one of their groups to the performance as a part of a day long guided tour of challenging adventures. Moreover they asked me to give them a pre- performance ritual to prepare them. I told them to randomly pair up the people before going to dinner. The people in the pairs would feed each other. I thought this might be the last I would hear from them. But if they did do this ritual, it would open everything up. And by God they did it, and it did open everything up for everybody. It is amazing we are attracting people like THE TRAVELING CLUBHOUSE who value being stretched even if it is uncomfortable. And they were not alone. We had a room full of people who came to go deep and have developed abilities that allow them to risk. It feels like we are only beginning to tap into a deep vein of potentials! Of course we have only been doing this for over forty years. Moreover the six of us create a personal base which allows us to call upon our intimacy together… And Erika being there adds something. Tomek and Kene-J have developed trance quivering flesh music which allows us to slip into unknown freedom which can feel scary. And people like Unrulee and Michael the street mayor of Berkeley who have come to my performances for years add a calm to the mixture, not to mention a knowing humor! And now people are coming who have an understanding of what is occurring under the surface level because of their own personal work, such as gal*in_dog [the POW POW guy] who is a performance artist and teacher. We are creating a powerful nexus of expanding erotic zones of an underground community building subversion! Stay tuned! Better yet, come to the next performance!

                      Recorded at Temescal Art Center, Oakland, California. This one is simply the most warmly erotic of my performances in years. That is because the audience was willing to take personal responsibility for saying YES, for playing, for risking for deep love. This shows what saying YES opens up, calls forth, and creates. Aroused erotic juicy sexy fun was created by rubbing nude bodies together within tribal intimate pleasure friction. This bodes well for the society as a whole! The whole night was pure uninhibited fun! Photos and more: http://www.eroplay.com/Cave/riskfordeeplove/august2012/index.html
