Public Display Of Affection
For the voyeur in all of us, P.D.O.A. (Public Display of Affection) have arrived. Conceived as a mixed media art project by Jesper Munk and performer Madeleine Rose (of dance theatre collective Das Gegenteil), the pair soon expanded to include Welsh film maker/punk prophet Lewis Lloyd (Plattenbau) and ‘real life’ Berliner Anton Remy (Baketown).
Playing their part in keeping Germany’s capital weird, P.D.O.A.’s live shows hark back to the fearless eccentricity explored by the West Berlin performance art and music collectives of the 1980’s. Similarly determined in their indefinability the group entices their ogling audiences with a novel brew of punk wonk, dramatic duets and kinky jazz.
