The A.S.U.C.’S STUDIO presents
Going Over the Edge
the 7th season of the free performance art series
7:00 P.M. at Rm. 125 Dwinelle, U.C. Berkeley
Live art for daring people who like to be taken just outside the normal reality.
Mr. Moore is known for his intimate performances which are personal, sometimes intensely silly, sometimes softly sensual, sometimes loudly tacky, and almost always involving audience participation. In the Passion Plays, the private innocence of kids in their hideout playhouse and the blanket caves after lights-out is brought back to adults.
Thursday, July 11 – Gestures: A dance of gestures moving toward intimacy, magic and at-oneness. This piece is based on Desmond Morris’ book, Manwatching.
