    Last Performance
      A film by Edwin Brienen

    Last performance eva dorrepaal

    Last Performance, the fourth and latest film from award-winning European director Edwin Brienen, is set in the tumultuous New York theatre world.

    Julia (Eva Dorrepaal), a European actress who relocated to New York to try and make the big time, stars in an avant-garde theatre play, directed by the eccentric Magda (Esther Eva Verkaaik). Inspired by obsessive philosophers such as Nietzsche, Schopenhauer and LaVey - "Forget the weak, the virtuous ones and the compassionate ones" – Magda explores the dark side of life.

    Julia's co-star, herein, is Cooper (Tomas Sinclair Spencer) who has an abusive relationship with the sexually frustrated Tom (Vincent Bagnall). Tom, unable to accept his homosexuality, in turn exploits Julia for his own sexual adventures.

    Cooper, enraged by jealousy, sets out for revenge and his actions, herein, trigger an inexorable wave of disintegration and misery. Soon, fact and fiction become indistinguishable as Julia too becomes the author of her own demise.

    Last Performance is inspired by New York avant-garde and underground scene of the early, early eighties and is suffused with the spirit of the icons of that period such as Andy Warhol, Yoko Ono, Laurie Anderson, Klaus Nomi, Lydia Lunch and Diamanda Galas.

    This film is projected for European release in December of 2005, followed by North American release in early 2006.
