THE BLIND DATE PROJECT
Created by Bojana Novakovic with Mark Winter, Tanya Goldberg and Thomas Henning; Produced by Andrew Carlberg
Desperate and looking for love, Anna (AFI award-winner Bojana Novakovic, star of RAKE and SHAMELESS) is a woman at a karaoke bar waiting for a date. With no idea of who she is about to meet or what is about to happen, each night a different performer whose identity is unknown to her until the moment of performance joins her.
The scriptless show is guided by director Scott Rodgers who is communicating instructions to influence the dates’ behavior and conversation via mobile phone. Even with this outside eye, the initial spark between the two performers rules the entire performance; do they want to spend an hour together? What will their chemistry be? How will the date conclude? No one will know until the very end, and no two dates are ever the same.
Always a surprise, guests at previous sell-out shows in Hollywood, Sydney, New York and New Zealand have included Margot Robbie, Jason Alexander, Joel Edgerton, Laverne Cox, Reggie Watts and Felicity Ward, among many others.
