|LaMaMa Experimental Theatre Club initiates its
weekly monday night original performance series on Monday October 3rd, 2005
with FRESH MEAT. A theatrical performance art production
that culminates in the work of celebrated downtown Alien Comic, Tom Murrin
and a group of seven new, fresh young performance artists from his workshop.

purpose and style.” In this One-Night only performance, Murrin and
company create an evening of entertainment where, ”almost anything
In "Fresh Meat", performance artists utilize the evocative
and expressive performance elements of masks, props and costumes to create
an evening of tasty, fibrous entertainment. Following an act by Alien
Comic, Tom Murrin, saluting the month of October, “The Month of
Harvest and Halloween,” performance artists Cary Curran, Jim Kroener,
John Roberts, Caleb and Soren Scott, and Gina Vetro will take the stage
to present their visually stimulating and humorous new work.
Alien Comic/Tom Murrin: Since 1978, Mr. Murrin
has been performing at every downtown performance venue. In 1998, he was
inducted into the P.S. 122 Performance Art Hall of Fame, which honored
his unique vision and creativity. Murrin has conceived and presented over
a thousand completely different shows around the world, utilizing props,
masks, costumes, and a constant stream of patter. Each show uniquely reflecting
the social atmosphere and attitude of when and where it was created. From
his monthly "Full Moon," shows to "Fashions for Defense,"
to "Sex, Why?," Murrin’s fast-paced, visually chaotic
and barbed commentaries are funny, silly and smart.
Company: Cary Curran, Jim Kroener, John Roberts,
Caleb and Soren Scott, and Gina Vetro.
