Bare Performing Bodies

Yes these are more naked art performances as seen on several other pages here. There are so many naked videos, but these I recommend for their artistic wonder. There is rubbish and there are inspiring pieces. I hope these are inspiring to you. Soon I hope to create short films that may be as interesting.

The Cockettes
 Anyone interested on in gay history, performance art, cabaret and high camp no-holds barred flamboyance must watch the brilliant DVD 'The Cockettes'. I found it one of the best things I had seen in so long that truly inspired me in a way similar to the film 'Gandhi' (1982) although inspired in different directions. It gives on faith in creativity and of course uncensored, in your face art. BTW, I am pleased to hear that Gandhi had a German Jewish man Hermann Kallenbach as the great love of his life.
Something borrowed

It is the end of a decade, New Year's Eve 1969. At the Palace Theater in San Francisco’s North Beach, a ragtag bunch of hippies take the stage. Kicking up their heels to a Rolling Stones’ song, they wow the crowd with their mix of flamboyant garb, nudity, and gender ambiguity, and when the bearded "chorus girls" lift frilly gowns to reveal glittering genitalia, the Cockettes have made the scene.

During the next three years, the Cockettes create 20 shows and are featured in 4 films. With play titles like Tinsel Tarts in a Hot Coma and Pearls over Shanghai, the Cockettes make an indelible mark on popular culture. When Rex Reed writes a glowing review calling their performance "A landmark in the history of new, liberated glowing theater," the Cockettes become national media darlings and are off to the Big Apple. The Cockettes begins with the star-studded New York opening night, then jumps back in time to experience first hand the energy of these escapees from middle-class America. With incredible craft, directors Bill Weber and David Weissman have painstakingly gleaned and layered together amazing archival footage and linked it with interviews from those still living to capture not just a history of the Cockettes, but their essence. Those who remember may suffer a touch of nostalgia, but for the rest it is a remarkable time capsule. Representing a moment you won't see in the history books. The Cockettes is a gift full of remembrances of the combined spirits that lit the way for the glitter rock era to come.
