What happens when artists take their ideas to the other side of the world?
More than 30 artists and arts organisations have taken part in UK/ID residencies, both in Indonesia and the UK, over the last year. They are exploring different themes but they always work with fellow artists, curators and local communities, using various media from sculpture to video and sound installation, incorporating new and experimental technology whenever they can.
First Dates captures the differences and difficulties, but also the surprising things that people find they have in common, even when they come from places 11,000 kilometres apart.
