Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre - Auditorium
An informal, rousing music and theatre spectacle. Through songs, spoken word
and unmistakeable imagery, this is the story of newcomers to the afterlife
who discover, much to their surprise, that death is not actually the end.
Incredulous at their continuity, they form their own necropolitan
community where every night is party night: songs get sung, love gets made
and whisky flows. Created and performed by Vanishing Point and A New
International, The Dark Carnival transports audiences into an unexpected
vision of the afterlife full of long-lost lovers, half-hearted ghosts, and
songs that find themselves in a musical space somewhere in between Leonard
Cohen and The Muppets.
