A passionate and heartbreaking love story set in the underworld of Berlin.

Divine Intervention is a dreamlike quest into the subconscious of a woman battling with addiction and grief. This electrifying gig-theatre production follows two broken people and their search for salvation.

“It is theatre at its most intense, frightening, visceral and, at times, painful to watch. I loved every single minute of it.” Broadway Baby on Medea Electronica
