LET ME BE FRANK, a new web documentary video series on the life and art of Frank Moore
Let Me Be Frank is a video series based on the life and art of shaman, performance artist, writer, poet, painter, rock singer, director, TV show host, teacher and bon vivant, Frank Moore.
The series is partly a biography, but also a presentation of Frank's philosophy on life and on art. Twenty-plus episodes have been planned based on Frank’s book, Art Of A Shaman, which was originally delivered as a lecture at New York University in 1990 as part of the conference “New Pathways in Performance”. Each episode will feature readings by people who played an important part in Frank’s life, either as friends, lovers, students, artistic collaborators or supporters of his art.
Episode 1, "A Lucky Guy" features readings by Gerald Smith, a former Black Panther, and Martha Wilson, Founding Director at the Franklin Furnace Archives.
Let Me Be Frank presents Frank's exploration of performance and art as being a magical way to effect change in the world ... performance as an art of melting action, of ritualistic shamanistic doings/playings. Using Frank’s career and life as a "baseline", it explores this dynamic playing within the context of reality shaping.
The series is available on Frank’s website at http://eroplay.com/letmebefrank/ and on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/channels/letmebefrank
