Witi, An Interactive Show
Be a part of the show, all from your phone! Paint, compose music, take selfies, and more, without ever having to leave your seat.

Using a custom companion app, participate in real-time with the performance and help bring to life the first creative artificial intelligence (AI), named Witi. Through your interactions, Witi will learn to become the first AI with the ability to create works of art on its own.

All interaction is done without the anxiety of having to take the stage or being placed in the spotlight. And if you'd rather just watch, no problem. All participation is 100% optional. Because Witi’s personality is fueled by your input, every show will ultimately be unique.

The show stars Matthew Hoelter, a Chicago-based improvisor and creator of the Improv Tonight app. 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.
