Doppelgangster

Doppelgangster is an international performance company based between Wales and Australia. It is currently responding to climate change, forced migration and globalisation. 

Doppelgangster may or may not include a known terrorist threat, a pilgrim lost at sea or a regular working class, mortgaged, hard-working, working family. That said, Doppelgangster may be nobody at all.

Doppelgangster exploded onto the world stage with Catastrophilia (2015/16); an incendiary year of performances, online videos and subversive political interventions.

We're heading to Melbourne and Sydney with THE ETERNITY OF THE WORLD: PARTS MISSING by Doppelgangster and MKA: Theatre of New Writing.

A black mass, a misremembering, and a disappearance act.



From Aristotle to that 'Cruisin’ episode of Rockos Modern Life, this troubling and mesmerising contemporary performance work speculates beyond the known. 

A stark, strange, and surreal event; featuring the twice singularly brilliant performances of Kerith Manderson-Galvin and Tobias Manderson-Galvin, the cutting, experimental jazz score of Maria Moles (JAALA) and Adam Halliwell, and the incendiary dramaturgy of Dr Tom Payne (Doppelgangster).

I recently attended Homo Novus Festival of Cotemporary Theatre in Riga as a guest of Cape Farewell. I was there to talk about Doppelgangster at COP21 in Paris last December. Read about it here.

Doppelgangster's TITANIC rips up the screenplay from James Cameron's 1997 epic Hollywood tear-jerker and a maelstrom of other sources including the Titanic DVD Special Features Disk and eye-witness, survivor accounts of people who actually saw the film at the movies. 

Cameron's narrative is subverted by competing historical, fictionalised and completely fantastic accounts, as early 20th Century political spin, media confusion and public anxiety are given voice, amplification and a flare gun.

TITANIC is about ‘educated guesses’, 'operational matters' and the impossible pursuit of ‘truth’. This most grand spectacle is staged entirely from a shipping container and stars Tobias Manderson-Galvin (MKA | Australia) as Titanic Director Cameron; Dr Tom Payne (Silver Rocket Club, Hydrocitizens) as handsome, though slightly aged, Leonardo DiCaprio, and a guest performer as elderly, and suspiciously alive Rose. All accompanied by a recorded and amplified score by Jules 'Crazy Legs' Pascoe. First class seats available.
