The Dark Carnival

A music and theatre spectacle, The Dark Carnival features sixteen performers and musicians telling the story of newcomers to the afterlife who discover that death is not actually the end.

The Dark Carnival

About The Dark Carnival

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 will transport audiences into an unexpected vision of the afterlife full of long-lost lovers, half-hearted ghosts, and songs.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Dark Carnival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
