B-TV 20th Anniversary Live Cable TV Special


Recorded December 6, 2014.

It is always so much fun reading Frank's amazing poems and last night was no exception.

After bragging about Frank's almost 15 years of producing his 2 1/2 hour weekly show, Unlimited Possibilities (this week's show is episode #600!) for B-tv and mentioning the other two shows that still play as replays on B-tv (Going Deep to the Core at Burnt Ramen with Frank Moore and Deep Core Magic) and then mentioning that Frank brought Dr. Suzy to Berkeley and continues as sponsor of Suzy's weekly, very popular show, I ended by reminding people that Frank was on the forefront of the fight to keep uncensored adult programming on B-tv.

I introduced the reading of the poems by saying that I have been reading Frank's poems for almost 40 years but up until a year ago Frank always read them with me, so ...  That was Erika's cue to hit play on the CD player and out came Frank's voice booming and then I started reading. Super great!! Our wonderful Tomek came and set up his rig of music-making contraptions and played along in that amazing way that he does with the poems and Frank's voice.

I read three poems (instead of the four that we had planned). Brian cut us short because he fell way behind schedule and it was a live TV show. Perhaps I tried to bully a bit to read that last poem, but he didn't go for it!!

Then to our surprise, Kirk Lumpkin was the next performer and he started out with an intro about knowing who he would be following and so read his amazing poem that he wrote for Frank after Frank's passing.

It was a great night.

Gestures - University of California, Berkeley


Recorded July 24, 1986
Camera by D.D.Downer

Gestures: A Dance of Gestures moving towards intimacy. This piece is based on Desmond Morris’ book, MAN WATCHING.

From the poster:

Friends of the Studio presents The Edge in Frank Moore’s Awake Dreams
Free series of live performances supported by a grant from The National Endowment for Arts
7 P.M.
Rm. 125 Dwinelle, U.C. Berkeley
Thursday – June 26, July 10, July 24, August 7 1986

Awake Dreams are improvised mischievous avant-garde performances which at first appear childishly simple, but which devilishly suck the audience into a surreal and sensual underground where even serious can become silly without taboos to spoil their fun. Each piece is designed to goose your mind and morality … among other things.

Frank Moore is a well-known performance artist who always tries to create a dream reality in which anything is possible.

The Edge is an avant-garde company of actors and artists founded and directed by Frank. The Edge is focused on subversion, on magic, on altering reality … and is not afraid of combining individual arts together.

“Raucous and startling”
 - L.A. Times

“Important, sensual, spiritual”
 - Rachel Rosenthal

“Frank Moore succeeds in pulling us into his world … he turns in one helluva performance.”
