This project was born out of a desire to bring together the arts and science in a unique way... As jury members, you will have to question your own morals.

The year is 2061. The world as we know it has changed. You are part of the first ever trial to decide the fate of an individual who has broken a climate law. You, the audience, are the jury.

This is a fully immersive piece of theatre. As jury members, you will have to question your own morals, debate on climate change, consider geographical privilege and decide on the outcome of the show. 

Born out of a desire to bring together arts and science, this project explores themes around climate change and sustainability, offering audiences a uniquely interactive experience as they investigate the future of Greater Manchester.

Ergon has been commissioned by Re:Con, a group of young creatives who are curating an artistic project, supported by Contact Theatre, Manchester.

Friday’s performance will feature a post show discussion. Stay tuned for further information.
