Uncomfortable Zones of Fun, June 25, 2011



Frank Moore’s The Uncomfortable Zones Of Fun
experiments in experience/participation performance
Recorded at Temescal Arts Center, Oakland, California
Saturday, June 25, 2011

This is the performance we did last Saturday (my sixty fifth birthday). 

Well, sometimes I have an actor planted in the audience as an extremely uptight and extremely irrational person. This person sucks up all the hesitation from the room, making being afraid look so silly to the rest of the audience that they jump fully into the meat of the performance if only to not to be like him. "The artist's model" played this role perfectly! But this group didn't need such a plant. They came to play to change society! Quite a few had come to past performances and understood what was happening on deeper layers. And the new people were using art in their lives as their means to change society. So this just took them to a new level. The artist's model just provided the right amount of resistance so that we could explore important issues. 

And then we melted much deeper than ever before in performance into direct explicit erotic friction rubbing pleasure arousing states of play which released great amounts of freedom and exploring of intimacy. This was made possible in part by Nat's lusty willingness to rub Linda and me into her without any limits as we rocked and danced extremely nakedly together to the music of Tomek and his playmates. But others matched Nat's amazing beautiful sexy willingness while playing gestures together. This opened new doors in their relationships! WHAT A WAY TO SPEND MY BIRTHDAY!

FRANK MOORE’S CHEROTIC ALL-STAR BAND with THE WOMENTORS

I can die now because unworthy I, being a mere male bimbo nude go-go dancer, was abused by the queens of sleaze, The Womentors...carrot dildos, bloody tampons, freezing beer on my bare skin, etc... but all paled into sharp pain when my fellow bimbo dancer Fluff Grrl's bob in his sexual zeal started pushing me in my chair around the space full speed, unknowingly ramming my bum knee into the corner of a p.a. speaker!

But the show must go on! Womentors turned into Cherotic All-Stars for the jam with john the baker. And Raman’s Mykee...a jam of hot licks...and Linda and Erika also did some hot licking!

The Erotic Web Of Sound



Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band
Kimo's San Francisco, California
August 8, 2003

It was the first time I introduced much more explicit eroticism into the meat of the performance. Also I had the cameraman nude moving onstage, bringing you extremely intimate with the rubbing aroused melting bodies. So much so that you feel like you are within the erotic action!

The Uncomfortable Zones Of Fun, February 27, 2010

Below is what I wrote after this performance:

Ah! How do you measure success in a performance? Maybe when the audience [the people who come to the performance] start crying uncontrollably over releases of blocks that just disappeared just by walking through them with willingness and trust. Or maybe when a young sexy co-ed rocks nude on your lap, arousing all kinds of new possibilities. Or maybe when you attract a wide range of people, all ready to go all the way into the volcano, melting into a cozy little joyful community, willing to be uncomfortable and whatever else it takes to go into adventures of fun, floating on the mood music of Kene-J and a psychology grad student… The community so strong that they [most of them] kept staying, playing together, long after the “performance” was “over”, and then most of them went to an apartment of one of them to continue hanging out together! And I’m not even getting into what they said of how the performance effected them! [see below for that!] I am just glad I didn’t get in the way of the potential of the night! 

Yep! It was a great deep success! And the series is clearly building, tapping into the young art school student community, among other groups. Ah, yes, very dangerous and subversive! You need to do something for at least a year to start this kind of building. And it goes in waves. The art student came months ago. She went home all Shining and open and vulnerable and creative. Her roommates and friends saw the changes in her. So when they came, they were ready to go into it explicitly. This audience was the most explicitly ready in over a year!

Gestures - Holly



This is a private performance shot in the early eighties. That was the time that I was coming up with the concepts and rituals that I would use for decades afterwards. I had just coined the word EROPLAY for intense aroused physical play which didn't include intercourse or orgasms. I created the first, very linear version of my ritual GESTURES to explore the possibilities and limits of EROPLAY. Holly was a university student with a lusty willingness, trust, and understanding of EROPLAY.

Gestures - Barbara



This is another private performance shot in the early eighties. That was the time that I was coming up with the concepts and rituals that I would use for decades afterwards. I had just coined the word EROPLAY for intense aroused physical play which didn't include intercourse or orgasms. I created the first, very linear version of my ritual GESTURES to explore the possibilities and limits of EROPLAY. Barbara was a grad student studying Greek with a lusty willingness, trust, and understanding of EROPLAY. I met her when we were filming EROTIC PLAY which she is in. In fact, we got together to talk and play several times to help me define EROPLAY.

Frank Moore For President 2008 Platforms



Ah, yes! I did spend two years running for president as a write in candidate! It is one of my most effective performances! It inspired a lot of people, forced changes in Laws in several states, attracted a lot of mainstream European press coverage, and gave me a platform on which to address issues. SEE, I AM NOT JUST A HUNK!

The Fuck The War Ball



Extreme Elvis, Xtian & Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band
November 17, 2001
Burnt Ramen, Richmond, California

Well, this was the period when I was producing a lot of music shows at the infamous illegal underground punk club THE BURNT RAMEN. this was the last two acts of a very long show. Traditionally my band closed the shows. Also, traditionally I cherry picked musicians from the other bands of the night to be in my band. But this show the musicians kept leaving during the show [the club was in the most dangerous neighborhood]. So at this point when I was the next act, I had no band except for Xtian [aka Christian Lunch] and a flock of nude women. So in the middle of Extreme Elvis's set [which I consider one of the top five performances of ALL rock 'n'roll history!], I asked Elvis if I could borrow his band. So our two sets melted together! Btw, we performed in what normally passed for the GREEN ROOM there because that was where E literally pitched his tent!
