Rebecca Moore (born May 21, 1968 in New York City) is an American musician and actress. Notable for her participation in FLUXUS inspired theater productions and experimental music, she was also the lover and onetime muse of Jeff Buckley. She is the daughter of noted FLUXUS photographer, Peter Moore and his wife, Barbara, an art historian.
Rebecca Moore was born and raised amidst New York City's Avant-garde art scene of the 1970s. She spent many years performing in experimental theater works by artists such as John Jesurun, (including his plays Deep Sleep and Shatterhand Massacre, in the U.S. and Europe), Richard Foreman (I've Got the Shakes), Ridge Theater (notably the Obie-winning Everyday Newt Berman by composer John Moran and Jungle Movie), filmmaker/choreographer Jo Andres, Julia Heyward, David Patrick Kelly, Taj Mahal, Clarinda Mac Low and many others. Her own solo performance art work at small venues evolved into full-scale low-budget surrealistic musical theater pieces, labors of love that often includes her band, The Prevention of Blindness. She has two CD releases to her credit and is presently preparing her third for the Oracles series on John Zorn's Tzadik Records.
In recent years Moore has become vocal in several social groups concerned with maintaining the creative and cultural heritage of New York’s East Village and Lower East Side communities such as the HOWL Festival, Take It to the Bridge and LOCO (Ludlow-Orchard Community Organization) which Moore founded. Moore is also opposed to the pushing out of long-time, low income communities and citizens that she believes have made these particular neighborhoods so vibrant.
