“...the Stephen Hawking of performance art who fucks with the frame.”
Underdog Online, Amsterdam
“Freedom and the power of free speech has become the signpost of (Frank Moore’s) work from the 1960s to today. His career’s work has been to burst through the barriers of social isolation that separate people.”
Nick Stillman, Editor, NYFA Current
“So I say give it up! The powers that be have already tried to shut Frank up, but it didn’t work.”
Bob Cardoni, rock ‘n’ roller
Re: The Drama Review “Eroplay” 1989
“I have finally read the Drama Review piece and I love it. It is one of the profoundest pieces of writing on performance or theatre or just plain living that I have read ever. Period. Something to read and think about over and over again. I am so tired of the new of the fast of the whats next -- they are killing our souls. I can’t call what you have written an essay but a love song to society -- makes total sense to me on the deepest most un-speakable levels. How you deal with the unconscious working side by side the conscious -- as you say like two films going on at once. If you never write another thing, Frank, it won’t matter because this piece is luminous. And believe me I have read so many manifestos, essays critiques, artist statements ad nauseum over the years. It’s a beautiful generous manifesto and I look forward to reading more -- it also has this beautiful slow pace as if forcing the mind of the reader to change pace as well and let the other world come to the forefront -- the cartography of the soul is where you take us...each in our own way...rather than your way...which is generous indeed of you.”
Shelley Berc, writer, teacher
“For being such a small little guy in a wheelchair, are you a hell of a man to kick in locked doors to rooms filled with taboos.”
Mickie Monster, artist, Sweden
“Frank's piece Cultural Subversion said everything that (I) was trying to say. Frank is a genius!”
John Sinclair, ’60s cultural figure
“You are truly marvelous. You’ve got it all right. You make the connections. And you ain’t afraid of nuthin’!”
