Divine - A New Age Musical
Divine – A New Age Musical is an ecstatic fanfare. It is praise and domination; it is dance and singing from the depths of cunts thirsty for life.

In Divine, Go Go Dance Group Kuumat Putket (‘Hot Tubes’) turns spiritual matters and go-go moves into a musical that rolls with the weight of its soon-to-be-middle-aged female dancers from one deep yet always entertaining subject to the next.
Kuumat Putket is a wannabe-go-go-dance group that was founded one
night in a bar by a group of dance professionals. The group comprises
eleven artists who work with contemporary dance, and creates
performances and happenings that engage in dialogue with various
phenomena of popular culture.
