Project Amelia, Take Control

The world moves fast. Every day there’s a new crisis, a new gadget, a new diet, a new obligation. Slowing down doesn’t feel like an option, and the constant pressure of everyday life can be overwhelming. But, does it have to be? What if you could let go without letting anyone down? What if responsibilities weren’t yours alone?

Buy Tickets $50-$70

Aura, the brand you’ve come to know and trust, has been working on the answers to these questions and invites you to experience the solution: an intelligent product made just for you. Replace all the disparate devices that clutter your life and streamline your physical, emotional, intellectual, psychological, spiritual, and time-management needs. This is not a technology you wear or carry. This is the future of you. Project Amelia: Take Control.

About the Show

Project Amelia is a next-level immersive theater experience that invites you to the R&D lab of Aura, one of the world’s most innovative tech giants, to participate in the launch of a groundbreaking intelligence product like no other. Upon arrival you will be assessed and given the opportunity to interact with cutting edge technologies in order to make your mark on this historic event. Will the launch of Aura’s product change the course of history? Or will history be changed by your participation? The future awaits. Take control.

Project Amelia is written and conceived by Michael Skirpan, and created by Bricolage Production Company in Partnership with Probable Models.

Details

Location: Project Amelia takes place in Pittsburgh’s South Side. The exact location will be disclosed via email in advance of your ticketed performance date. This experience is strictly for patrons 18 and up.

Free Thursday Post-show Discussion: Join us for a lively discussion every Thursday night throughout the run of the show. This event is open to the public and includes complimentary food and drink! Catering provided by Sprezzatura.

Tickets

General Admission: $50-70
The earlier in the run you attend, the lower the ticket price. This is in part to reward those who are our early-adopters – the ones who will show up the moment we open our door – and in part to better recognize the higher quality of experience that patrons who come late in the run receive.

Group Sales: Bring a group of 15+ and save $5-$20 per ticket. Groups get exclusive access to private catering and customized post-show discussions. Email us at info@bricolagepgh.org or call 412.471.0999 to learn more.

Free for All Tickets were made available on a first-come, first-served basis on August 2nd and are no longer available. Free For All tickets are a part of Theater for All, a Bricolage accessibility program intended to help remove financial barriers. If you were unable to participate  you can still get a free ticket by volunteering for the show! Sign up here to join our volunteer newsletter.

Accessibility

physically accessible, service dogs welcome, audio description and assisted listening, Braille and large print programs, and ASL interpretation

Project Amelia is wheelchair accessible. Bricolage also provides accommodations such as audio description and ASL Interpretation through our Immersive Companions program. You can browse our selection of support and comfort equipment by reading our Audience Menu. Bricolage is committed to providing an environment that is inclusive and welcoming to all. Immersive experiences are heavily rooted in the senses and often require movement. As a result, not all experiences are suitable for all patrons and we may need to make adjustments or plan parts of your visit in advance to best suit your needs. Telling us about yourself and any concerns you have in advance helps ensure the support you need will be available at Project Amelia, and that associated discounts can be made available to you. We encourage you to identify any concerns you have that may prevent you from having a comfortable experience by leaving a comment when purchasing tickets, calling our office at 412.471.0999, or emailing Fred at fred@bricolagepgh.org.
