Epoch Wars by Poney Express

Presented by New Annual Festival

What should we call a future worth fighting for?

Epoch Wars is a seismic, anarchic, immersive adventure camouflaged as a conference; a festival of Deep-Time Ideas where you get to decide on the name for our geological era.

Earth’s history is divided into massive slabs of time called ‘epochs’. Right now, a contest is raging over our slice, to re-label it the “Anthropocene”- the age of human impact.

But the “Anthropocene” blames all of us for Earth’s dire circumstances rather than the corporations, CEOs, and top dogs in charge.

Infiltrating Newcastle City Hall, Epoch Wars enlists you and a Live Art army of Australia’s most exciting artists and speakers to battle it out over the naming rights of our shared future.

The Geological just got Personal.

Running time 3.5hrs including breaks
Recommended for ages 12+
