Two members of Little Bulb Theatre present a brilliant gender twisting, live music, gothic storytelling mash-up that blurs the territories of theatre and gig, reclaiming what it means to be two women on stage
Thursday’s performance will be accessible to blind and partially sighted audiences
(see below for details)
Experimental live music and Baroque-pop mash-ups; gender-twisting visuals and gothic storytelling: this new work is an exploration of ‘the Doppelgänger’ – devised and performed by a pair of real life doppelgängers.
With an uncanny blend of European 1630s-inspired retrofuturism and 1930s wrestling, DoppelDänger explores the boundaries between self and other, gig and theatre, and questions representations of femalehood on stage.
Eugénie Pastor and Shamira Turner are associate artists of award-winning Little Bulb Theatre. After years of being mistaken for one another, they decided to lean into it, heavily. Together, they are interested in blurring the territories of theatre and music, extravagant multi-tasking, and reclaiming what it means to be two women on stage.
“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.”
“Doppeldänger at BAC is… kind of indescribable. Proper open-mouth-smile-all-through brilliant.”
“I loved the synth-baroque flair of #DoppelDanger @battersea_arts yestereve. Uncannily captivating…”
