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. In a two-week extensive performance art workshop, led by Murrin, the students were immersed in the performance explorations, practices and philosophies of the Alien Comic who states, “Performance is anything done with purpose and style.” In this One-Night only performance, Murrin and company create an evening of entertainment where, ”almost anything can happen.”

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.
