Taking place from next Friday the Electric Dreams Festival looks very toothsome, offering a curated selection of shows, games and experiences all designed for cyberspace. There are tried and tested piece including Jaavid Alipoor and Kirsty Housely’s The Believers are but Briothers and Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran and Coney’s Telephone. There’s another chance to play the on-line detective game Plymouth Point too. Or check out some of the other offerings including Kill the Cat’s The House Never Wins which allows you to gamble on the planet’s future or have a 10 minute theatrical encounter with someone far across the globe in A Long Distance Affair. I also like the sound of Twin Alchemy’s the Homes We Build, a participatory interactive experience for two people in their own home.
Electric Dreams Online is a festival all about connecting people through the power of art and the internet. Over three weeks we are bringing you a curated programme of incredible theatre, music, games and experiences that are designed for cyberspace.
