"Such a fun show and terrific use of new technologies in an audience participation setting. Grab a drink and get ready to (not) find your soulmate!" Ariel Estrada

"Ah! As I write this, you only have two more opportunities to see this show! Run, don't walk. SOULMATES is a truly unique piece of interactive theater that is sure to give you a welcome change of pace from the many stand-up and one-person shows that Fringe is so dominated by.

The conceit is that you are aboard the first-ever AI-powered international flight, from Edinburgh to New York. Additionally, your "platonic soulmate" is also onboard the flight, and by filling out a simple questionnaire before boarding, the plane's AI will find your match and connect you before you land.

Quite fun, and extremely impressive how well the AI works. Highly recommend". - Warren McGinnis

"A unique shared experience that (gently) forces you to interact with and discover the things that connect all of us! A novel and exciting concept of interacting with both the fellow "passengers" and the AI that is guaranteed to generate interesting and often unexpected outcomes. Get involved and enjoy it! " Richard Dean

The Waiting Room is an immersive experience combining elements of interactive theatre, game design, LARP and art installation. Minimalist in its setting it’s created to spark complex thoughts, interactions and dynamics among the participants. 


In our lives, we often find ourselves in the state of waiting: sometimes for something small and trivial, sometimes for life-changing events. 


 The waiting experience changes us. It gives us opportunities to experience self-reflection, patience, dependency, boredom, frustration and socially bond over mundane things.
