Oh, very funny, Azlan Image<BR>Most likely, two of us will be reviewing some of these for The Flying Inkpot, but that again depends if we are offered tickets to all the performances. And even if we are offered tickets, there might be some weird little mix-up at the front desk. Long story - if you want to know more, I'll e-mail you, heh.<BR>

WILL AITKEN - Globe and Mail, August 14, 2002:
Quote:
Singapore savours the arts

In a society where it's illegal for an artist to "confuse" Singaporeans or create content that's seen as harmful to family values and wholesome living, an artist can easily run into trouble. In 1994 performance artist Josef Ng exposed his buttocks and trimmed his pubic hair in a fringe performance held at midnight in a shopping mall to protest the arrest of 12 homosexuals.

Interesting... I would never have expected a Canadian newspaper to pick up on the Singapore Arts Festival...
