Description: AD2CART is a music and multimedia theatrical work exploring psychedelic
visions of digital consumerism. In it, a recommendation algorithm transcends the sidebar
to make contact with a user. Through a series of micro-targeted ads the algorithm reveals the path to self-realization. The user embarks on their journey only to discover that fulfillment is more elusive than expected.

“You were acting?…Never act again please.”
St. Petersburg,1905. Anton Chekhov’s grieving widow arrives at a rehearsal room and is joined by two actors – an art-loving son of a wealthy family, and a poor girl drawn to new rhetoric. Their passion, performances, and politics stir up a whirlwind of contradictions and memories amidst sex, love, and humorous self-loathing, as they wait for the unknown Russia to come.
