Immersive Theatre Event – 8-10 march 2013 – Westmalle (Belgium)
Aether is Belgium’s finest steampunk-event. Participants travel back in time to a fictional 1913. The world is similar to our own, but not the same. In this alternate history society runs on steam rather than oil.
The city of Raetsburg, famous for its university, is researching the effects of the Great War on the landscape. At the end of the 19th century Europe has stood on the brink of annihalation for twenty years as the great powers of east and west clashed. Now, one generation later, it is up to you to help build a better future.
In Aether – Bayard, the participants are aboard the pride of Raetsburg, the enormous train Bayard. Unfortunaly someone has sabotaged the railway and the travellers are forced to spend the night in the small village of Bosmolens. During the night, they discover that there is more to the sabotage than meets the eye.
