A new star…

Beginning with the discovery of a new star destined to change the perception of the heavens forever, Tycho’s Dream takes the audience on a journey through time and space, from Tycho Brahe’s 16th century Denmark to an imagined future where the hands of innocent children, watched over by the sinister Selene, mine moon rocks in search of the first word spoken on Earth.


In six distinct episodes, Tycho’s Dream sets off on a mission to explore the future set in motion by Tycho’s discovery, a future he never could have imagined; where a space elevator connects the Earth and the Moon, where children do not age and where speaking is banned on Earth.
