The Dating Project: First Date (2021)
BY Dan Mussett
First Date is a concept that falls under the ongoing THE DATING PROJECT created by Dan Mussett.
It is a re-enactment of a first date between two strangers who are meeting each other for the first time. Blurring the line between real life and performance, two participants are prompted to follow a series of instructions. By following these instructions, the participants slowly begin to discover each other, and as they do so start to play out a situation familiar to us all, of getting to know a stranger.
