In 2012 Michelle formed Violet & Veruca with Daria Wain to produce their work HolePunch. A madcap workplace cabaret that combined burlesque, circus, original music, comedy, clowning and more papier-mache then she ever wants to see again.

HolePunch performed at 2High Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival and Anywhere Theatre Festival to packed houses and rave reviews.

Adelaide Advertiser ****1/2 – “These women are damn funny”

Heckler.com – “really funny…clearly very talented performers”

Fresh 92.7FM – “plenty of unexpected laughs, lots of silliness and an ample helping of naughtiness”
