“Let's all celebrate and have a good time” – Kool and the Gang

The world’s been getting us down lately. It feels like everything is slowly unravelling, a ball of string hurtling down a hill in painful slow-motion, everyone clutching the frayed end of the roll as if that were helping. The future is murky and uncertain.

Amidst global crises and 24-hour rolling news, we’re taking Kool and the Gang’s advice. Part-theatre, part-dance party, part-funeral, Celebration aims to give anyone who can’t quite believe the world they live in, something to believe in.

Part of INCOMING Festival, a co-production between A Younger Theatre and New Diorama Theatre. 


Emergency Chorus makes live performance which engages with the contemporary moment with energy and playfulness.
