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.
The group's first stage performance, a drag show entitled JUST Queens (2013), was performed to packed theatres and made waves in the social media.
