All Tomorrow's Condensation

A steampunk puppet extravaganza by monochrom and friends

A steampunk theatre play extravaganza. With puppets!

In 1887 the Indian Empire of the British Nation was formed. How did that happen you ask? A good question, deserving of a good answer and, although the Britons don’t like to talk about it, the incident uprooted some entrenched colonial mindsets. Indeed, Samosas proved to be more tasteful than Fish and Chips, and the importance of the nation states was in decline, anyways.

The true masters of the times were the powerful steam barons, men who controlled the planet by controlling the energy. Their boots were placed firmly on the necks of the people they ruled. People who gladly payed for the privilege. Woe be to those foolish enough to tamper with their patents… the results were… well… let us just say that those foolhardy wretches would most certainly NOT be enjoying their final rest under a standard tombstone.

Energy was what mankind needed, hungered for, lusted after... energy. For airboats and cellular calculation machines, for geostationary weather factories and the energy to fuel the Infodampfbahn, the transcontinental data-steam network.

Societal business as usual. But can there be a better tomorrow?

monochrom try to reinterpret the steampunk genre in form of a steamy puppet extravaganza. A journey into the backwaters of imagination!


With Roland Gratzer, Johannes Grenzfurthner, Evelyn Fuerlinger, David Dempsey, Sean Bonner, Dan Kaminsky and Bre Pettis.
