DoppelDänger by she goat’s
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 She Goat, 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.”- The Wire, Jan 2017
