In a future plagued by the effects of global warming, Julius Bach’s Halcyen Corporation is about to release a new drug called Aeon that will fight a range of deadly diseases. But Bach has a secret he must protect from an investigative journalist, an ambitious rival and a former love. As Aeon’s launch gets closer, the drug is injected into Dari, an experimental test subject who will change everything.
Aeon is a multi-platform narrative, told through the Aeon:Miracle smartphone app featuring video episodes, image galleries and short fiction. Audiences can become part of the Aeon world through immersive live events and Sentinel, a spectacular soundtrack performance.
Aeon is written and directed by Richard Evans. The app and live events are produced by Cold Star Media & Ric Michael, with support from Arts Council England, the University of Salford, the University of Manchester and Manchester Science Festival.
