Sheffield’s own unique cult of anarcho-nihilistic, political theatre makers – Doppelgangster – bring a very special performance work to the SHU Performance Lab stage for Off-the-Shelf Festival 2019.
This spellbinding juggernaut features violent comic riffs, rapid-fire physical spectacle, an exceptional young ensemble, and a collection of new and appropriated texts ranging from raging panic to doom-laden rituals.
CHOKE ME is a new experimental performance that has been commissioned by the Department of Humanities especially for Off the Shelf Festival of Words. It features young artists from all years of the BA (hons) degree in Performance for Stage & Screen at Sheffield Hallam University.
