“Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like to direct your attention to the on-board safety demonstration and ask that for the next twenty minutes you give us your full attention. In the unlikely event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure alternative scenarios will be provided. Next of kin will be provided”

The many worlds interpretation of Quantum Mechanics proposes that every time there is more than one possible outcome, all of them occur. Countless worlds of varying similarity where anything that can happen is already happening.

Maybe there is some comfort in knowing that however ill advised your choices have been - there is a version of you who made better ones and is suffering from less regret and embarrassment

‘Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return’ - Leonardo da Vinci

‘What Rosenberg and Neath do with Flight is to harness the very uncertainty of pretending, and in doing so create an experience that’s properly exhilarating. It’s a perfectly programmed high-art theme park ride, a reminder of one’s closeness at all times to death that spits you out into the sunlight feeling palpably, certainly, alive’ - Ben Kulvichit, Exeunt Magazine

‘It’s a truly singular and provocative piece of art’ - Evan Popplestone, Cinema’s Fringes ★★★★★

‘One can only hope that this is the future of all live entertainment’ - Siri Hedreen, EdFest Magazine ★★★★★
