SPACE DIVE – Episode IV

You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
Step into a galaxy far, far away on May 4th + 5th, 2018, as the Tangent Gallery bar transforms yet again into an immersive recreation of the Mos Eisley Cantina!

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

First Order fascists have seized the galaxy,
and their new Supreme Leader appears to be a childish egomaniac.

After the death of Cantina-regular Han Solo, rumors emerged that his fellow war hero (and Jundland Wastes moisture farmer)
Luke Skywalker returned to stand against them.
Some say he was a ghost, a mirage.
That he lit a new spark, that the old Rebellion is reborn.

Not everyone agrees with these events, however.
It is a period of civil war among us, and these are strange times.

A troubled tale of Solo’s youth looms ahead, inevitably filled with lies and deception. Many prefer his past remain a mystery.
Others hope for an escape from saga politics or religion.

But is it true, as some say, that the Force never belonged to the Jedi, that it lives in all of us? Is there a growing Resistance out there or just a delusional band of activists? Is endless star war our lot in life?
Republics, Empires, and Orders come and go.
Bloodlines don’t matter much in the Outer Rim.
You want to make a difference?

Go Force Yourself.
