An international performance company currently creating work in the UK and Australia. Doppelgangster creates iconoclastic, politically charged, entertainment. Company operations work to critique contemporary issues at local, national and global levels. Doppelgangster responds to urgent concerns such as climate change, forced migration, and corporatism. Current projects include work for unconventional spaces, using intimate face-to-face encounters, large scale spectacle, and online environments
Doppelgangster was founded in 2015. In this brief amount of time the company has created work in Wales, England, France, USA, and Australia. If you’ve witnessed Doppelgangster it might have been online, or live in the flesh from a shipping container, a carpark, a lane-way, a gallery, a lecture theatre, a town hall, a stage, a converted barn, an old school, on the banks of a river, a concrete vault underneath London’s Waterloo station, in a former WW2 fascist boot factory, and/or Paris’ Grande Palais.
Doppelgangster has received support from National Theatre Wales, Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Chapter Arts and MKA: Theatre of New Writing; company members’ inclusion in the company has had support from the Australia Council of the Arts, and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation; and no-one in the company steals very often.
