Dr. Richard Kerbavaz - Frank Moore's Shaman's Den



Dr. Richard Kerbavaz
How To Reform The Healthcare System
Recorded May 2, 2008.

Rich was Frank's ENT doctor for over twenty years who became a dear friend. Frank called Rich one of his favorite people to be with.

This is the third time that Rich Kerbavaz was a guest on The Shaman's Den. This was during the time that Frank was running for President of the U.S. He asked Rich to come on the show this time as a doctor who knew the medical system  to compare Frank's healthcare plan to the other major candidates at that time. This is the chart that we used on the show:

Compare Frank's healthcare plan to those of John McCain, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton

btw, Rich also took us on his yacht to help spread the word of the Campaign. What a fun adventure that was!!!

Intimate Cave - Franklin Furnace, New York City 1987



This was the first performance Frank did at Franklin Furnace in New York City. It is a five hour performance. Franklin Furnace had gathered some people for us to be in the cast and we had two people who had been in the Los Angeles cast of this performance, thinking it would help with this group of local people that had never met or worked with Frank before. This is also the first time Frank had Annie Sprinkle in his cast. Although we had talked to Annie on the phone a number of times, and Frank and Annie had snail mailed back and forth (before email!), and we were staying at Annie's apartment (she insisted!), this was the first time we were meeting Annie in the flesh. This was also before Annie broke into the performance art world (which Frank predicted during this trip!).  The L.A. artists knew who Annie was from her porn work, and to our shock, they thought it was beneath them to work with Annie, so were rude to Annie, would only talk/engage with her in the context of the performance. Annie, being the sport, took this in stride and assured us that she is used to this and it is ok. I, on the other hand, was horrified and broke down crying at Annie's apartment in the evening after one of the rehearsals saying, how can this performance be about how we are all one and yet our cast is not talking to each other!? At the next day's rehearsal Frank had Annie and the L.A. female cast member go into the tent to eroplay (she would do this because it was part of the performance) while he had the rest of the cast lie down with eyes closed as he led them through a mind trip together that created the feeling of magical oneness, after which he told everyone that he was canceling the rest of the rehearsals and all they needed to do was remember this feeling and don't worry about the script (which was thick!). He said if the performance fails, his is the name that people will associate with it and he doesn't care!

Franklin Furnace’s press release 1987:

Thursday, May 14, 1987; 7pm – midnight

Frank Moore makes his long-awaited debut in New York with a troupe of 15 local performers, in his controversial performance, “INTIMATE CAVE.”

“INTIMATE CAVE” will use dream-playing, magical rituals and playful sensuality to seduce the audience into a child-like reality beyond fears and doubts. Moore’s weird characters are silly pranksters who will take such things as nudity and physical contact out of the realm of adult sexuality.

Frank Moore gives the audience an opportunity to converse with him via his letterboard and to play an active role in his performance. Moore’s previous production of “INTIMATE CAVE” in Los Angeles was so successful in creating a safe, warm world of human contact that the audience stayed for several hours after the formal ending. Moore’s unique charm and humor brings back the cuddling curiosity of childhood.

Frank Moore’s performance “Intimate Cave”

Thursday, May 14, 1987, 7:00 p.m. – midnight
$6.00/ ½ price for members

You are invited to Frank Moore’s performance that will begin with a strange man sitting in a small cave of foil and ribbon. The audience is welcome to communicate with this Shaman via a letterboard. A troupe of weird characters, silly pranksters, and local performers will come out of the audience to perform intimate and softly playful rituals of random gestures. The audience has an opportunity to play an active role in this ritual, creating a magical unknown “awake dream,” where anything is possible.

Please bring your own mats or pillows.

Going Deep To The Core At Ramen with Frank Moore #3 - Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band



Recorded August 31, 2006 at Burnt Ramen, Richmond, California

Visit the new channel for this series: https://vimeo.com/channels/goingdeep

And it was time for the Cherotic All-Stars’ jam! Lob, Dr. O. and Zack [the only cherotic virgin of the night!] held onto their instruments. John the Baker took over the roto-toms. Dr. Gruve stepped in with his harmonica. Linda and Erika in only rings and pearls started tickling each other as they vocalized with me. Hey, I didn’t have on even rings or pearls! The tickling melted into dancing, rubbing together into each other, absorbing me into them, exploring secret inner places and pleasures, floating on the music, feeling the bass … music expanding into everything strobing multi-colors. The jam started there and floated deep into the warm body.

After the jam, John tried to do what will be seen at the beginning and at the end of every episode of the tv show. He tried and tried and tried. Those bloopers alone are enough reason to watch the show!

EZTV - Wrapping/Rocking & Statues, Los Angeles, California



Recorded September 9, 1988. AUDIO BEGINS JUST AFTER THE 2 MINUTE MARK!

This is a from a 2 night run performance at EZTV in  Los Angeles, California.

Michael, the guy from EZTV who booked us, also shot this video of a couple segments from the first night.

This was towards the beginning of Frank having this cast made up mostly of his apprentices. You can see Mikee doing Body Music with Sabina. Also, Carlos, the chanter wearing the I HAVE AIDS sign around his neck. When Carlos was diagnosed with AIDS, Frank started having him wear that sign at performances, and cast him as The Dying Man who would talk briefly with each
audience member in a small tented area as they entered the space. He told them that dying was not something to be feared. That it was not painful in itself. It was a transition.

When a reporter from the LA Times interviewed Frank in our hotel the morning after attending one of our performances found out that Carlos really did have AIDS, it blew his mind. He said, I thought the performance was great before this, but now it has gone to another level.

From the poster:

Journey to Lila
A performance by Frank Moore

This five hour journey will be through inner space and inner time to Lila, the island of play and illusion in the sea of how-things-should-be.

This performance will dare to go through the uncharted waters of death, rebirth, and childhood.

The audience will enter the beautiful bodies and the open personalities of teenage Lilans who are taking part in the magical rituals of eroplay and wrapping unity.

Friday, September 9
Saturday, September 10
8pm      $8

This was the first time the poster art for one of Frank’s performances was done by LaBash!
