Chocolate Messiah Coming to Milwaukee

Chocolate Messiah Coming to
Marc Tasman,
The Chocolate Messiah is a scrawny man, dressed in red,
liquid-chocolate-soaked briefs. In a choppy photo collage of him on
his Web site, he stands beatifically amidst Buddhist monks, while
dripping with blood-like chocolate syrup. ‘Choco is Coming,’ is
written prophetically across the sky in clouds. But who is Choco –
and where are his pants? It’s actually Marc Tasman, a multi-media
performance artist, who divides his time between Milwaukee and
Chicago spreading the word that ‘chocolate is love.’ On Valentine’s
Day, he beckoned school children and college students to take the
gift of chocolate in preparation for his ‘Chocolo-Spiritual
Exercise’ on April 6 in Milwaukee. In a ceremony that will benefit
the renovation of an arts building, people will be invited to cry
out with Amens and pour cans of chocolate syrup on Choco. Although
the whereabouts of the Chocolate Messiah’s trousers are unknown, he
hopes that these ‘simple acts of giving chocolate, symbolic
gestures of love and kindness, will inspire all humanity to love
one another and live in peace.’
