BAD REPUTATION

From Doppelgangster, the visionary theatre-makers behind postmodern thriller, Doppelgangster’s TITANIC, comes a mesmerising, psychedelic tale of three lighthouse keepers on an isolated island.  Imperilled by oppressive fog, when a ship ignores their light and smashes into the rock, nothing prepares them for what’s on board.  

 

Featuring scintillating performances by BA Acting & Performance students from Sheffield Hallam University and BA Creative Arts students from La Trobe University, Melbourne.

 

Doppelgangster cranks up the horror and tension in this new audio work inspired by Three Skeleton Key by George Toudouze.

PROCESS & DOCUMENTaTION
Doppelgangster worked closely with professional collaborators and a combined Sheffield Hallam and La Trobe student ensemble in order to make a unique and development-driven show that explored themes associated with pandemic lockdowns as experienced in the geographically distant cities of Sheffield and Melbourne.
Facilitated by a dynamic team of Doppelgangster artists, who acted variously as research guides, directors, playwrights, acting and vocal coaches, designers, and composers, the students took the role of live artists and collaborators. Students undertook research and writing tasks and developed an understanding of the ‘mechanics’ of the company’s unique making process.
The young artists were asked to perform, to act, to be themselves, and to portray others. Direction was given in the preparation and development process, including the shows online development, the creation of text, and technical production.
