we build unexpected experiences

The Heist

The Project:

The Heist is an interactive experience that invites audience members to pull off a classic, cinema-style robbery. Inspiration for the project comes from the great heist movies of the past 50 years, and the colorful history of bank robberies in the United States: the former football star who stole $400,000 from a bank with the help of craigslist and an inner tube; the a southern belle who spent decades robbing banks dressed as a bearded cowboy; even the two men who robbed banks without a trace for 30 years until one of them wanted to retire.

The Heist created by Erika Grammel, Karen Shimmin, Rebecca Stevens, and Aaron Weissman
