Version 1.0 'is a performance group whose work not only investigates, but also enacts, participatory democracy. We believe that if the personal is political, then the opposite is also true - the political is personal. We make political performance that is also intensely personal - human scale interventions into the body politic. We make performance through collaboration, densely interweaving contemporary performance, theatre, opera, dance and video art. We do not create simple narratives, but kaleidoscopic portraits of the contemporary world we inhabit - a complex and multiple Sydney, Australia, World.'

Version 1.0 was founded in 1998 and incorporated in 2006. It is a not-for-profit association incorporated in New South Wales.
