Thu 22nd Nov - Thu 22nd Nov
After years of being mistaken for one another, real-life doppelgängers, Eugénie and Shamira, have finally made a show about it. With gender-twisting visuals and gothic storytelling, DoppelDänger is an exploration of dangerous doubling that reclaims what it means to be two women on stage. You’ll be seeing double with this gig theatre featuring experimental live music and Baroque-pop mash-ups.
With an uncanny blend of 1630s-inspired Euro retrofuturism and 1930s wrestling, DoppelDänger is a bilingual boundary-bending attic takeover about the self, the other and togetherness. Shamira Turner and Eugénie Pastor are associate artists of award-winning Little Bulb Theatre. Together they are She Goat, interested in blurring the territories of theatre and music, and extravagant multi-tasking.
Created & performed by She Goat. Shamira Turner & Eugénie Pastor. Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre. Supported by & developed at Camden People’s Theatre. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

“like Björk’s dissonant combinations of simple vocal melodies laid out with humour over complex sonic productions.”
“a surreally funny show about identity” ★★★★
