The Performance

A daring fusion of two powerful and poignant masterpieces, the work combines Stravinsky’s Petrouchka with Kendrick Lamar’s Pulitzer Prize-winning album DAMN. These two works have striking similarities: firstly, they each offer a challenging commentary on the human experience through a ‘show-within-a-show’ device (in Petrouchka it is a puppet show taking place within the main action on stage, in DAMN it is an alternate world set into motion by a gunshot); secondly, the main characters, Petrouchka and Kung-Fu Kenny, waver between being joyfully accepted and sadly misanthropic, as they struggle with their identity and reality.
