The Full Moon Show With John Pizza: How to Make a Stage

The Full Moon Show With John Pizza: How to Make a Stage

September 20

Visit Howlarts.org on Monday, September 20, 2021 from 12 AM to 11:59 PM to watch the Full Moon Show!

It’s a production – but it’s no stage.

It’s a showing – but there ain’t no performer.

It’s opening night – but there’s no damn audience.

How do you exhibit yourself?  ‘Cause I wanna take notes. Lemme know…..

Join John Pizza for How to Make a Stage, a YouTube-style vignette on building a D.I.Y. theater anywhere, anyhow, or not at all.

John Pizza is a performer, builder, and drawer. He uses trash and thrift-store detritus scrounged in his Brooklyn neighborhood to tell stories and make his shows. He loves the macabre and the mushy sweet. His sculptures are performative, and his performances involve sculptures—an object theatre of weird surprises. 


About Tom Murrin and the Full Moon Show

 Performance is anything done with purpose and style. —Tom Murrin

Howl! Happening is home to the archive of Tom Murrin, aka the Alien Comic and the Godfather of Performance Art. Every full moon—without fail, paid booking or not, in all seasons and whatever the weather—he performed his Luna Macaroona Full Moon Show. When he had a club date that fell on the full moon, he’d wrangle his friends to perform as guests—pushing the careers of such groundbreaking performers as David Cale, David Sedaris, Amy Sedaris, Blue Man Group, Ethyl Eichelberger, Lisa Kron, and many others. When he didn’t have a club date, he performed on the street for passersby, transforming the pedestrian atmosphere with his madness and magic.
