Nino and Iliko

Participated in: MIDPOINT Series Launch 2022

Nino & Iliko takes place in Soviet Georgia between 1925 and 1957 and tells the story of two lovers and talented dancers Nino and Iliko who have a dream to start their own dance company in a regime that only allows conformist art. What inner and outer obstacles will they have to overcome and what deals will they have to make with the system and the Great Leader Stalin himself, in order to achieve the fame that will take them beyond the Iron Curtain?

Based on real events, Nino & Iliko is an inspiring love story and an example of artists’ fight for success in one of the most brutal political systems in world history, narrated with the help of amazingly beautiful dance choreography in the background.
