“There’s a detailed map of your personality out there and companies you’ve never heard of are getting rich off it.”
Welcome to Octopus Inc., the internet giant that allows users to exchange their personal data for currency. But not everyone is prepared to sacrifice their privacy quite so easily…
A teenager subverts the system in an attempt to save her mother, a visionary tech exec takes shortcuts to get ahead and a cybercriminal makes a choice between two kinds of freedom.
Rose Lewenstein’s topical and provocative play grapples with a burning issue of our time – the right to control our own data. Darknet navigates through the world of data commodification and the uncharted deep web, shining a light on the things we choose to share and the places we go to hide.
