THE BLIND DATE PROJECT
Desperate and looking for love, Anna (AFI award-winner, Bojana Novakovic) is a woman at a karaoke bar waiting for a date she matched with online.
Each night, her date is a different guest performer, unknown to her until the moment of performance. There is no script. All dialogue is created on the spot by the performers. Directions are sent by the director, via phone. This is an untethered night of theatre where anything can—and does—happen. No two shows are ever the same. The Blind Date Project is not just an improvisational experiment, it’s a real, risky, and preposterous exploration of humanity’s deepest craving for human connection.
Guests are always a surprise and have included Margot Robbie, Joel Edgerton, Laverne Cox and many more.
After sold-out runs in New York City, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, Los Angeles and Cincinnati, The Blind Date Project comes to the Adelaide Cabaret Festival for evenings bubbling with humour, candour and connection.
