The apprehension of going on a blind date is suddenly compounded when a group of people – you the audience – gather to witness an improvised meeting between two complete strangers in a karaoke bar.
The premise is simple – or so it seems. A woman sits alone waiting for her date to arrive. That date is a different performer every night. The catch? The actress, AFI award winner Bojana Novakovic, has no idea who she is about to meet.
Guided only by text messages and phone calls and interspersed with random songs, each performance promises to be as unpredictable as it is dangerous. The daringly devised encounters are devoid of scripts or rehearsals and no two shows are ever the same. Things may turn out to be humiliating, tender or totally hot.
