84min | Italian | by Alfredo Chiarappa, Caterina Clerici
The Performance is a creative documentary about a charismatic dancer from Iraqi Kurdistan, who left everything behind to become a successful choreographer in New York. When the Covid-19 pandemic hits the city, putting its arts scene on indefinite hold, he seems to turn it into an opportunity, premiering a choreography that receives rave reviews. Soon after, everything he had built up to that point starts falling apart, and he is forced to navigate relationships and friendships
in a changing American socio-political landscape, until he’s left with nothing to lose but his dream.
