Witi, An Interactive Show

Witi, An Interactive ShowBe a part of the show, all from your phone! Paint, compose music, take selfies, and more, without ever having to leave your seat. This first of its kind production, incorporating a distinct digital twist through the use of a custom companion mobile app, will allow audience members to participate in real-time with the performance. Throughout the show, the audience’s interaction via the app will bring to life the first creative artificial intelligence (AI), named Witi. Unlike other AIs, such as Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa, Witi will be taught during each performance to become the first AI with the ability to create works of art on its own. The show is designed to allow audiences to influence and participate in Witi’s evolution, but without the anxiety of having to take the stage or being placed in the spotlight. From the comfort of their seats, audience members will use the app to guide a large range of creative activities for Witi on the stage, such as painting, composing music, or taking selfies. The app enables optional participation. Because Witi’s personality is fueled by the input of the audience, every show will ultimately be unique. The show stars Matthew Hoelter, a Chicago-based improvisor and computer engineer. Hoelter has been working on this show for over a year, and plays Witi’s creator. Witi is voiced by Parla Hoelter, another Chicago-based improviser. The Hoelter siblings have been performing improv and sketch shows together and separately around Chicago for several years at various venues, including iO Chicago, Second City, Annoyance, CiC, and more.
