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. Above the ground, the cemetery brims with life. But a mysterious event throws the lives of the living into uncertainty. When news reaches the cemetery, an underground revolution begins, led by the stoical Mrs Mark and her band of necropolitans.
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.
