DoppelDänger by She Goat – a part-gig part-theatre wild & gothic exploration of dangerous doubling
Touring with performances accessible to blind and partially sighted audiences in London and Bristol this Summer!
After years of being mistaken for one another, real-life doppelgängers, Eugénie and Shamira, have finally made a show about it.
Encompassing experimental live music, Baroque-pop mash-ups and gothic storytelling, DoppelDänger is a bilingual boundary-bending attic takeover about the self, the other and togetherness.
Surreal, empowering: it’s Schubert meets the Spice Girls, with electric candles and hijacked video art.
Featuring an uncanny blend of 1930s wrestling and 1630s-inspired Euro “retrofuturism” for the bespoke-made costumes, an eclectic mix of instruments including autoharp and synth; DoppelDänger is a theatrical gig fuelled with gender-twisting sibling rivalry.
Shamira Turner and Eugénie Pastor are associate artists of award-winning Little Bulb Theatre. Together they are She Goat, interested in extravagant multi-tasking and blurring the territories of theatre and music.
The Wire magazine says about the show:
“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 doppelgängers wear uncannily similar outfits: gold and brown playsuits lined with fancy white lace, white skull caps with holes for their ears, and white leather wrestling booties.
