In Development

By David Finnigan

A dance coup from the razor sharp pen of David Finnigan.

The internet took their parents.
Now, they’re taking them back.

With her mother’s generation disappearing down the rabbit hole of online conspiracy theories, high schooler Gwen sets out to fix the problem at the source — by destroying the internet itself.

To succeed, she needs to sabotage a key network hub at the Global Internet Exchange. It’s only accessible once a year, during the finals of Australia’s most prestigious school dance competition.


Now, Gwen’s mission is to turn a ragtag team of high school misfits from Fluro High into champion dancers — and if they can’t find their groove in time, a whole generation might go up in flames.

Following Kill Climate Deniers and 44 Sex Acts In One Week, Dance Dance Insurrection is the final chapter in David Finnigan's devastatingly funny Carbon 2000 Trilogy.
