The holycoaster s(HIT) circus by PENG! Palast

I just caught Swiss-German theatre group PENG! Palast’s brilliant production the holycoaster s(HIT) circus the other day. It starts out with an entertaining behind-the-scenes ‘documentary’ of the group’s earnest attempt to collaborate with Israeli dancers, before plunging into a relentless stage performance that confronted the audience full-on with deeply uncomfortable issues of the prejudices and stereotypes in our lives. Every single one of us was cringing in our seats throughout the performance. Pretty incredible stuff.
