Go on a politically incorrect rollercoaster at the M1 S'pore Fringe Fest 2013


At least one person walks out of The Holycoaster S(hit) Circus every time it is staged.

The name of this provocative mockumentary-cabaret should give you a hint as to its theatrical inclinations.

But its creators from the Swiss-German theatre group PENG! Palast and Israel's Machol Shalem Dance House would rather have a negative reaction to their confrontational work than none at all.

Dennis Schwabenland, 29, the Germany-born co-founder of PENG! Palast, laughs: "It really splits the audience. But I think that's a good sign that it's not mediocre."
