This month’s Full Moon Show is a dance-ritual of gestures of symmetry and opposition.  These wild and strange times can bring feelings that stretch between fear, weirdness, comfort, and confidence. To be prostrate is relaxing and also vulnerable. To be spread eagle is a position of defiance and also softness. Step with John Pizza into a regimented circle for What Goes Around Comes Around, and in a measured way, let go by holding on.

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 Alien Comic, 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 groundbreaking performers like 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.
