After charming audiences at the 2015 WOW Festival with Romulus Kilgore’s Mobile Happiness Bazaar, People of Interest returns to the WOW Festival with PDA, a documentary dance theater piece featuring real-life performer couples. Performed outside at sunset, this romantic new work investigates their relationships’ history through body language and tests the boundaries of how they publicly display their affection.
