Edinburgh International Fringe Festival

July 31-August 26th, 2019
Bedlam Theatre
Venue 49


The Female Role Model Project is an interactive theatrical experience incorporating live neuroscientific recordings celebrating female pioneers, which premiered Off-Broadway at New York City’s premier hub for arts and technology- 3-Legged Dog (3LD). It received an Honorable mention in Creativity category as part of Fast Company's World Changing Ideas Awards 2019.

It combines theatrical performance and interactive games with live recordings of neural activity from both actors and audience members. (It’s part performance, part game show, part storytime, and part psychology/sociology lesson packed into two hours that definitely won’t leave you bored. PlaysToSee). The Female Role Model Project  is playing next at Bedlam Theatre July 31-August 26th as part of the Edinburgh International Fringe festival 2019.

We are excited to announce that Arthur New World Inc. has joined us on this adventure as a Co-Producer.
