The performance has been created by a Nordic working group in which Stefan Åkesson has represented Poste Restante and it has been produced by the Finnish-Swedish duo Blaue Frau.

In the performance, seven actresses share the secrets of their trade and hand down experiences from the theatre's 2500 year-old tradition to the visitors. As a visitor you are offered tools and strategies that might facilitate the staging of your own online-self and you are invited to explore the political potential of the internet.

From the working group's doctrines:
- Our internet has the potential of becoming a feminist utopia.
- Our internet is a place where all should be themselves.
- Our internet is a place where one can be transformed.
- Our internet is a place where personal lust take precedence over the desires of others.
- Our internet is here.
