Aeon—meaning a vital force, or an indefinite period of time—bears tension with †(dagger): the symbol placed beside the name of a species indicating it has become extinct.
The world of AEON† speculates a realm between the infinite and the definite. The performance space becomes a fertile petri dish incubating distinct and recombinant organisms.
AEON† births a hypnotic ecology of beings that emerge from the muck of a decomposing parallel world.
Justin Shoulder and Matthew Stegh are both artistic collaborators and partners in life. Their work together crosses diverse projects including theatre, design, visual arts and club events & parties.
