Queer PowerPoint, the Queerest show in town is playing at Bondi Festival 2024 for 2 nights of corporate presentations and personal optimization…but queer.

Queer PowerPoint is the cult hit experimental performance series in which Queer artists from Sydney are invited to explore and share an idea, current obsession, or ongoing fascination using that most staid and ubiquitous of programming tools – PowerPoint.  It’s a bunch of queers deep diving into highly niche content in a very gay way. 

Reclaiming and queering the corporate presentation from our straight capitalist overlords, creators Xanthe Dobbie and Harriet Gillies host this night of surprising stories, secret passions and starwipes;  commissioning artists to create a new 10-minute performance lecture about absolutely anything – the only rules are they have to be queer af, and they have to use Microsoft PowerPoint. 

Come back together and revel in this new strangeness with a digital tool from a simpler time. 

This cult event is seeing out the year with a hilarious and nerdy evening‘ – Time Out

Meet the artists:

Queer PowerPoint is a collaboration between an all-queer Sydney-based team of creatives: performance maker Harriet Gillies, digital artist Xanthe Dobbie, creative producer Thom Smyth and AV manager Charlie Kember.
