Paradigm Rhymes





Paradigm Rhymes: Beyond the Dome is a futuristic tale, a fast moving performance of spoken word narration, live jazz music and projected comic book digital imagery.

Within the Dome the minds of young people are controlled. History has been revised and all art is banned. Creative acts are crimes; the worst crime is playing the music of improvisation – jazz.

At critical points in this story, you the audience will be presented with a choice of two options facing the young lead character. It is up to you to decide which option to take. You decide the path of this story.
