Doppelganger is a cross-disciplinary group of artists, stemming from the intersection between performance art, dance, music, painting, photography, video, writing and archiving. By establishing a performative situation, Doppelganger questions certain common codes of thought and pushes the audience to reflect on questions of origin and social class. The use of simple language, albeit in a complex configuration, aims to address a wide, multicultural, multilingual, and diverse audience. The title toys with notions of duality, mimicry, synonyms, twins and lookalikes. It examines actual physical resemblance as well as the more subtle resemblance of character. All stages of the collective work are documented before and during the performances by a photographer and a videographer, in order to create an archive. Doppelganger is intended to be on-going, open, contemporary, inclusive, diverse, versatile and multi-tasking.
