No script, no scene: Random people become part of reality shows in Sofia

Passers-by will become heroes of a non-standard reality show, which will take place in the center of Sofia. People will be challenged in various situations and the footage will be broadcast to the public an hour after filming starts tonight.

No script, no stage, no audience. Just a camera in hand and bystanders on the streets of many European cities. This is necessary for the creation of the so-called theatrical reality show.

It is part of the Anglo-German artistic collective Gob Squad, who have been interpreting theater and film art in a new way for almost 30 years. They have been in Bulgaria for several days and are preparing for their reality performance “Super Night Show”.

Each of the artists is equipped with a video camera, a cassette and has exactly one hour to go out on the streets of Sofia and challenge random citizens to participate in his skit. After that, all the artists go home and the raw footage is broadcast to an audience.

“We all watch so many movies and series and what we want is to bring the movie clichés to the street. For example, tonight in Sofia we will have a superheroine who will try to solve people’s everyday problems,” said Bastian.

Simon has been a part of the collective since 1998 and says that he got into absurd situations.

“I once accidentally shot a drug deal and had to slightly turn the camera to the other side. Life is like that after all, unpredictable. But we also have a lot of emotional stories. In Brazil, a homeless man told us his story about how he ended up on the street and that was a very powerful moment,” he shared with Bulgaria ON AIR.

The footage will be presented to the Bulgarian public on September 15 and 16 at 9:00 p.m. at the Sofia Thermal Power Plant.
