    from Frank Moore Added 25.7K 27 0

    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...

      • Dying is Sexy - Toronto, Canada, August 1999


        from Frank Moore Added 34.1K 56 3

        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!

        • Pleasure Friction Of Intimacy, Part 1 - Build, San Francisco, California, October 4, 2003


          from Frank Moore Added 25.1K 42 1

          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!

              • Risk For Deep Love, August 4, 2012


                from Frank Moore Added 58.5K 135 11

                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

                  Recorded at Temescal Art Center, Oakland, California. This one is hard for me write about because it was mostly under the surface level. It was preparing for the private performance between Ava and me later this month, plowing the field for potential depth. And also there was inter- personal trash going on, making doing the performance like driving a truck! [And I don’t mean between Ava and me.] But I am a professional and people [except for one or two] came ready and willing to risk, and go deep into the unknown. And this was what the performance was. So I will let the others below write about it. But since when did “performance artists” [for that matter, “actors”] develop such active distasteful vomit fear of improvisation? It is to the point where they deny that an improv performance is in fact a real performance. They run away in fear… where everyday Jane and Joe jump lustily in!

                  • Erotic Friction


                    from Frank Moore Added 370K 422 21

                    Center for Sex and Culture, San Francisco, California, April 17, 2010. Ah, if you don’t do your best work when you are performing at THE CENTER FOR SEX AND CULTURE where there is a deep base, community, spiritual environment of freedom and exploring, you might reconsider your life work! And the physical theater there is designed to promote a cozy intimacy. This is not to say there are not special issues when you are performing in such an erotic institute of freedom. Like a lot of the people came in with crusts of sexual hip images. These would have blocked going deep within one another. But they very quickly shed these crusts. We then had a cozy room of adventurers who were willing to play softly and be silly together, floating together wherever the performance took us. They took personal responsibility for wanting to go wherever the performance went. This caused the night to be one movement flowing freely from one port of call to the other as if we just discovered a different level of where we were just exploring. Usually I just keep throwing out bits and see what catches. But last night it was so smooth! Of course Tomek’s music lubricated everything. But that is always what I depend upon! Last night I may have had one or two or more great plants. That always makes my job a lot easier! But mainly it was the people who came. Actually we ran out of time to get into EROTIC FRICTION. This is why I in my younger days did forty-eight hour performances, and why I do series of performances. More: http://www.eroplay.com/Cave/eroticfriction/index.html

                    • The Passions' Conductor, Part 1 - Build, San Francisco, December 1, 2000

                      This is one of the most sexy erotic explicitly intimate pieces we have done, mainly because of the hot floor dance of Linda and Teresa. In the band that night was John the Baker, Dr. O and Gio, and later Bob Madigan of FLUFF GRRL. It was a time of transition. This was one of the last long pieces we did because age was changing us. Oh, you may think the three hour performances that I do today are long. But I had been doing forty eight hour performances. So this six hour piece seemed short at the time. But the days afterwards we felt it much more! Also I had just dropped the formal structure that I had been using for years. It had begun to be too predictable. So this one was totally improvised!
