The Month of Performance Art–Berlin (MPA–B) is looking for exciting, sexy, dancey and unforgettable musical acts to complete its fantastic line up, for its fundraising party on February 8th, 2014 at the iconic West Germany in the heart of Berlin-Kreuzberg.
In May 2014, the 4th edition of MPA-B will once again bring experimental and ground-breaking performances to the general and specialised public alike, with an eclectic programme featuring performances, lectures, screenings, site-specific actions, public interventions, discussions, workshops and unique audience encounters and interactions, at dozens of locations city-wide.
As an artist-run and non-funded initiative, MPA–B supports itself by throwing annual fundraising parties. In 2012 we were at Mindpirates with the one and only Jahcoozi. In 2013 we hammered Platoon Kunsthalle with War Bear and many other cult techno-DJs, and in 2014 you could be the next one in crowning our killer-line up of fantastic musical acts, that have been supporting the biggest and most daring performance art platform in the world over!

Until last night, I have never had a lap dance.
Outside the converted warehouse I queue with other men and women, before being led to a small, tiled room with a black metal chair. As I sit down, the curtain closes behind me. Rosana Cade, a slim, white woman with long brown hair, is standing with her back to me wearing black underwear and leopard print high heels. She begins to speak…
Slowly but surely we are reaching the end of a Month filled with mesmerizing, fascinating and jaw-dropping performances, which surely pushed every audience member and performer to new zones of comfort and tolerance. We’ve witnessed Berlin’s streets coming alive with the most avant-garde encounters our little planet earth has to offer – but this isn’t everything!
