DIVINE – A New Age Musical
by Go Go Dance Group Kuumat Putket
In DIVINE, Heli Meklin appears as a performer and a co-creator.
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.
