The Full Moon Show: Do I Live Inside a Miracle?
November 18, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Every Month on The Full Moon
With 2018 approaching her 12th house of endings and another full moon descending, Amelia Bande offers us a brand-new show, brand same moon. In her precise, identifiable consciousness, she helps us off the moving sidewalk of Scorpio season with a tender hand, outstretched. Amelia Bande is a Taurus moon, of course. —Greer Dworman
A question: How do you sustain healthy long-lasting relationships with all of us?
It’s almost winter, days are shorter and dark. So we get to see you up there for longer hours! I promise not to exploit your emotional labor. I keep on saying “I love my job” and then I get frustrated and say, “It’s just a job.” Maybe it’s the same for you? —Amelia Bande

About Tom Murrin and the Full Moon Show
Godfather of performance art, Tom popularized a hilarious show every full moon in honor of his moon goddess, Luna Macaroona. Inviting friends to join him on both stage and street, he pushed the careers of such groundbreaking performers as David Cale, David Sedaris, Amy Sedaris, Blue Man Group, Ethyl Eichelberger and Lisa Kron among many others. Transforming the atmosphere with madness and magic, Howl! Happening’s monthly series continues the Murrin tradition with pop-up performances in the gallery and on its sidewalk.
About The Tom Murrin Archive
Howl! Happening safeguards the Tom Murrin Archive comprising masks, costumes, scripts, correspondence, photographs, and tapes of performances going back to the early 70s. Murrin (February 8, 1939 – March 12, 2012) also known as The Alien Comic and Jack Bump, was a performance pioneer whose life and work inspired both artists and audiences for over 40 years. He was a member of the first generation of La MaMa playwrights he premiered four plays produced by John Vacarro’s Play-House of the Ridiculous, including the offbeat hit, Cock Strong, which toured with Ellen Stewart’s La MaMa Troupe to Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels.
Tom began to perform under the name Alien Comic, opening for acclaimed punk bands in rock clubs such as CBGBs and Max’s Kansas City. As Alien Comic he performed in such venues as The Pyramid, 8BC, King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Performance Space 122, Dixon Place, La MaMa, and more. Since the mid 80s, he’s created, performed, and curated a series of variety nights at Performance Space 122, and La Mama Experimental Theatre Club and Dixon Place, called The Full Moon Show. His plays Sport-Fuckers and Butt-Crack Bingo were produced at Theater for the New City and La MaMa and directed by David Levine. Tom was the first performance artist to appear on stage at the original Dixon Place location at 37 East First Street in 1986.
The Full Moon Show is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement / Creative Learning, supported by New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. LMCC.net
