"Or, a vision in a dream. A Fragment."

About

Philosopher. Tech pioneer. Conceptualiser of the internet-connected dildo. Ted Nelson has crammed a lot into his 83 years of existence.

In 1965, Nelson imagined a version of the internet that could rival the mythical Xanadu. Flash forward 55 years: the internet is 20% porn, 20% cat videos, and the rest is targeted advertising from Wish.com.

Xanthe Dobbie is a digital artist. Harriet Gillies is a performance artist. Together, they want to pull apart the internet and rebuild it into the utopia that Nelson envisioned. But they need your help 😉

Pleasuredome is theatre at its truest: live, communal, unpredictable. It just also happens to take place on the internet. After a break-out performance as part of 2020’s Griffin Lock-In, we’re bringing back Pleasuredome with our friends at Sydney Festival—for a strictly limited season.
