'Margarite visits a club and sees a stripper who is a mirror image of herself. She begins to believe that this could be the daughter she was pressured to adopt out as a teenager.
'She’s Not Performing journeys through the psyche of a woman living in a hyper-sexualised world as she searches for a child she once lost, grappling with subconscious fantasies and fears about her ability to reclaim her identity as a mother.
'Pulsing with bold images and stripped-back language, it’s a darkly surreal and tender look at past adoption practices in Australia and the impact they have in the present day.'
