|Po Po Mo Co|
Melbourne's Po Po Mo Co take queer clowning so far over the rainbow that the rainbow looks dull in comparison.
With a pink-sequinned curtain, spooky villagers and bum puppets*, the indie troupe re-imagine the famous 1922 German Expressionist film as a sexed-up panto, and ensure that "She/he/they is behind you!" never gets old.
With host nurse Regina (who qualified from the make-everything-sexy Halloween university), Nosfer-ARSE-tu is all cheek as a wealthy doctor leaves his wife to travel to a mysterious castle to pursue the truth that lies in his heart, and his arse. And don't worry, the wife gets to do some deep exploring of her own.
Po Po Mo Co are super camp, super queer and so outrageously post-postmodern that they defy description.
*Even if Betty Grumble does it better.
