Doppelbanger

Doppelbanger

Part cabaret, part gallery-style Tarot reading, Doppelbanger is a multi-media solo performance embodying gay obsession, identity, trauma, and joy. In it, Jonczak conjures look-alike ex-lovers through storytelling and movement/dance on a quest to learn: Do I want to be him, or do I want to be with him? In one vignette, Jonczak depicts how, after a catastrophic breakup, he mimicked the way an ex-boyfriend washed his face in the morning as a method of holding on to him --until he could no longer remember having ever done it differently. In this striking physical performance, Jonczak combines his personal experiences with live Tarot card readings for select audience members on a journey to learn how to access the unlimited versions of ourselves.
