Presented by She Goat
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. Surreal and empowering: it’s Schubert meets the Spice Girls, with electric candles and hijacked video art. Bring your other selves along for the ride.

“The highlight comes in She Goat’s DoppelDänger, two artists linked and the limbs and singing…strange compositions, like Björk’s dissonant combinations of simple vocal melodies laid out with humour over complex sonic productions.”- The Wire, 2017
