An urgent theatrical response to life under lockdown, from internationally acclaimed political-activist theatre company Doppelgangster.
From visionary theatre-makers Doppelgangster comes a mesmerising and psychedelic tale of three lighthouse keepers imperilled by oppressive fog on an isolated island. When a ship ignores their light and smashes into the rock nothing prepares them for what’s on board.
Featuring blistering performances by BA Acting & Performancestudents (Sheffield Hallam University) and BA Creative Arts students (La Trobe University, Melbourne), Doppelgangster cranks up the horror and tension in this audio work inspired by Three Skeleton Key by George Toudouze.
Bad Reputation is a dazzling, mesmerising and thrilling audio artwork inspired by life under lockdown. Text-based,post-dramatic, political satire, featuring a talented company of emerging artists, and a violent and anarchic experimental jazz score.
Doppelgangster is one of the world’s leading environmental and political activist theatre companies and has staged controversial performances at UNClimate Talks, horrible corporate expos, and public demonstrations.
