We are proud to be supporting Aliki Chapple’s latest show 666 Comments, coming soon to:
Sat, March 10, 2018
In October 2010 cartoonist Gabby Shultz posted a comic strip on his website. It was about sexism online.
What could possibly go wrong?
Over the next three days the comic went viral and the comments went bananas. Some of them were witty, some of them were outrageous, some of them were just plain bizarre.
Plenty of them shed light on the darkest corners of the internet, in all its vileness and vitriol.
666 Comments is an attempt to stage that comment thread. Two performers, 57 characters, 666 comments. What could possibly go wrong.
Hilarious, provocative and occasionally plain terrifying, 666 Comments brings the virtual world into astonishingly vivid reality.
