"A HEROIC PERFORMANCE" E. Geliot, CCQ


"TOTALLY DISRESPECTFUL TO THE VICTIMS OF THE DISASTER" J.Ellis, The Sprout

"PUTTING THE DADA INTO CLIMATE DANGER" Cape Farewell


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.
