Milk Me presents: Public Display Of Affection (P.D.O.A.)
For the voyeur in all of us, PDOA (Public Display of Affection) have arrived. Conceived as a mixed media art project by Jesper Munk (of Jesper Munk notoriety) and performer Madeleine Munk (of dance theatre collective Das Gegenteil), the pair soon expanded to include Welsh Filmmaker/punk prophet Lewis Lloyd (Plattenbau) and ‘real life’ Berliner Anton Remy (Baketown).
Playing their part in keeping Germany’s capital weird, PDOA’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.
Clearly attempts at description prove futile, producing nothin’ but a genre buzzword mush. Nevertheless, what PDOA guarantee is an act of near zen like non duality, hittin’ that golden ratio between the soulful and the sinful, the familiar and the far-out, the harmonious and the chaotic. So go on, take a peep!
