The Blind Date Project (Aurora Nova in association with Andrew Carlberg and Bojana Novakovic)
By Aida Rocci | Published on Wednesday 17 August 2016
A blind date. Anything can happen. Most people can relate to that giddy feeling of meeting someone with the prospect of a happily ever after, but ‘The Blind Date Project’ reveals the voyeuristic pleasure of watching intimacy develop between two strangers. Set in a bar, Anna meets a new guest every night. Nothing is scripted, but the key to the show is the brilliant production, which guarantees quality and spontaneity. The show is directed live, the performers are incredible (including the cheeky but endearing bartender) and the characters are set up to entertain. The pace doesn’t lag, there’s humour and a surprising sense of realness to the evening. By the end, even the audience falls in love.
Zoo Southside, until 28 Aug.
