“If you are a fan of theatre and haven’t yet heard of version 1.0, you haven’t been listening properly.” - The Daily Telegraph.
Sydney-based version 1.0 is a group of artists who make devised performances that are both political and intensely personal, based on strong research, and that engage with significant political and social issues using innovative theatrical strategies.
version 1.0 is acclaimed in Australia for its innovative, accessible and entertaining blend of documentary theatre, contemporary performance, and media spectacle. Previous performance works include The Table of Knowledge (2011), the Green Room Award-winning The Bougainville Photoplay Project (2008-2011), the Helpmann Award-winning This Kind Of Ruckus (2009-2010), the Drover’s Award-winning Deeply Offensive and Utterly Untrue (2007-2009), The Wages Of Spin (2005-2006), CMI (A Certain Maritime Incident) (2004) and The Second Last Supper (2001). Founded in 1998, version 1.0 was granted Key Organisation status by the Theatre Board of the Australia Council in 2009.
