this show represents the dangers and consequences of nuclear warfare.

it progresses through older warfare, the creation and use of the nuclear bomb on Hiroshima, the dangers of nuclear warfare being ignored, and the end of the world.

the idea came from the "doomsday clock," which I learned about after falling into a youtube hole... i guess it worked out.
(if you want to learn more, this is a nice summary)

on the field would be many props representing time; clocks, clock-towers, hourglasses, sundials (more golden colored)

there would be large props with silks that can change between imagery likely found from ww1 (in slight color), a cityscape (black & white), and a depiction of a landscape where disaster occurred (lots of fire... reds & oranges).
maybe two of these large props with silks would have a bunker design on it (w/ nuclear symbols... brick & dark colors), needed for a certain part of the show. they would separate from where the rest are at a certain point.
