Nonfilms - Frank & Nina

Recorded in the early 1980's.

This is an out take for FEISTO [ ] with me having my way with a pillow.  But Nina [ from FEISTO and FAIRYTALES CAN COME TRUE, ] came in and things threatened to get even hotter!

Nonfilms - Tereza & Frank

Recorded in the early 1980's.

This is one I don't remember shooting.  But it is amazing how she went from making us turn off the camera as she changed costumes to just hanging out nude relaxed in a very short time.

Nonfilms - Julie

Recorded in the early 1980's.

Julie was a mother of grown kids, a history buff, and a dweller of a different altered reality!

Kathleen 6-hour Training, April 11, 1984

In this video, I'm giving the actress who would be in my performance series at University of California Berkeley in the eighties the philosophical and historical context of my work.  Then we rehearsed the very first ROCKING which became an extremely important ritual in my performances for decades! You never know what will stick!

The Uncomfortable Zones Of Fun, December 17, 2010

Recorded at Temescal Art Center, Oakland, California.

Ah, the last performance of the year and the first full out performance since May when I almost died.  It is like riding a horse or a bike [I have done both]…  You never forget how to do it, they say.  But the large crowd tested that theory.  Usually when it is stormy outside, we don’t get many people.  It is the same for over the holidays.  But both didn’t keep people away this time.  So I was faced with a rug full of people eager to play.  It was like sitting down to a complex instrument, trying to figure out how  to play it.  And drums and violins appeared in the audience to play with Kene-J and Mark [where was Tomek?].  But there were too many possibilities within the crowd, so it took most of the time opening the packages so to speak, and we were just getting started playing when it was time to wrap it up [and it was a very satisfying powerful wrap up!].  There was a lot that happened.  But it was the tip of the iceberg.  That is why it is a series!  If I was driven by my own expectations, judgments, bits I have thought of years ago but time/space for which has not appeared yet, etc, I would get in the way of the performance.  My main job of the night was to guide things away from casual, social, judgments, and other blocks to getting deeper.  It worked.  We curved away from “democracy” where people vote on their judgments and desires, curved into the tribal body where serious fun could occur, which was why most people were there.


The Uncomfortable Zones Of Fun, May 5, 2012

Recorded at Temescal Art Center, Oakland, California.

Hey, this one was much more dynamic than they have been for the past six months!  That is not to say it couldn't have gone much farther.  But everybody worked.  A lot left shaken up!  A lot of seeds and time bombs were planted!  Reality happened!

Nonfilms - Inga & Anne

Recorded in the early 1980's.

These are another platonic female couple of friends who lustily played together intimate sexy fun!

But can anybody explain why, even after they had gone around topless, they then hid their nipples?  And while you are explaining, why are bare female nipples so taboo?

Nonfilms - Jan

Recorded in the early 1980's.

Ah, this cute sexy babe in the wheelchair is a poet who did everything she had to do to live a free independent life.

Eroplay - April 24, 1985

This is one of those hidden gems which I had forgotten ever doing.  This is one of the most intensive examining, both Intellectually and erotically, of what I do.  As a sexy and smart actress and I talked philosophically about the processes I used in calling forth erotic trust and intimacy in my performances, a deep state of intimate trance was created so she played with me on the mat.

Frank and Shirt Jam at the Purple House, April 25, 2012

This is a jam I [piano, vocal, chimes] did at the house with Shirt who has been playing music at the performances for months whenever he has been in town.  After the jam, Shirt told me he first heard of me from a professor when Shirt was going to art school in some hick town in Pennsylvania twelve years ago.  FATED!
