Aeon: Liberation

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2018.

It’s the near future. You’re a researcher taking a tour of a cloning facility. Protesters suddenly burst in. What do you do? How do you react? Welcome to Aeon, an immersive theatre experience exploring a future when gene editing means we can not only cure diseases, but clone humans. As you are confronted by protesters demanding an end to what they see as unethical creation of sentient beings, the situation gets tense, and you’ll come face to face to face with the moral complexities of medical testing, and also with the clones whose release may pose a risk to all of humanity.
