WHAT CRITICS ARE SAYING:
“The Pod both quickly and peerlessly accomplishes that almost inscrutable goal for immersive theater: It engages and challenges its audiences while profoundly affecting them along the way…It’s simply an exquisite experience.” – Cristen Brinkerhoff, Haunting
“Just give it all the awards. Katelyn Schiller is… literally an otherworldly talent. Nick Rheinwald-Jones has done his best piece so far. Swear to God, I’m just sad it was so short. ” – Matt Ritchey, Gia on the Move
“One of my favorite one-on-one immersive experiences I’ve done.” – William Kistler, Fringe Reviewer
“And what happens when you leave the simulation is likely to be one of the more powerful moments of this year’s Fringe.” – Kevin Gossett, No Proscenium
Macora Aerospace and Robotics International has selected YOU as a candidate for the first-ever human voyage to Proxima Centauri B, our nearest habitable planet located 4.22 light years from Earth.
But first, both you and your mission partner need to be thoroughly evaluated.
We have organized a training simulation that will prepare the two of you for the decades of your life you’ll spend in deep space. Macora engineers have crafted a vessel using advanced laser propulsion technology — informally known as The Pod — that is capable of making this incredible journey in a mere twenty years!
The Pod can only carry one human being.
Your partner is not human.
But we hope she will be the perfect companion.
Good luck. We’re counting on you both.
THE POD is a twenty-minute single rider sci-fi immersive experience created by Katelyn Schiller and Nick Rheinwald-Jones. You might know them from their work on immersive hits Safehouse ’77 and The Sideshow.
For the most personalized deep space simulation experience, PLEASE OPT IN FOR EMAIL COMMUNICATION when purchasing your ticket, and you will receive Macora’s online “POD Candidate Survey & Safety Waiver”. Please submit this information at least 24 hours prior to your launch time.
IF YOU ARE BUYING TICKETS FOR ANYONE OTHER THAN YOURSELF, PLEASE EMAIL [email protected]COM WITH YOUR GUESTS’ NAMES AND CONTACT INFORMATION.
