Joy. Power. Sensuality. Rage. Double Goer is a wild theatrical dance celebration of the intense emotional bonds of female relationships.

Double Goer – the literal translation of doppelgänger – is a deeply surreal work in which two strikingly similar female performers are born, reborn, meet, battle, and try to find the limits of and spaces between their bodies. The two dancers move between interdependence, love, care, competition, wit, physical agility, and stamina in a terrain of intricately handpainted and radically constructed artefacts.

Acclaimed choreographer Sarah-Foster Sproull, designer/advisor Andrew Foster, and dancers/collaborators Rose Philpott and Tamsyn Russell leave no stone unturned in their exploration of the power of women’s subjectivity.
