Everything is nicer together
Doppio is an active association with numerous committees, some of which are specifically made for supporting productions. Down below you can find more information about these committees. If you want to find more information about the committees you can take a look here.
- DeKafé – Decor en Kostuum affiniteits ensemble (Décor and costumes)
- It’s in the name! This committee helps you with making costumes and décor.
- Techco – Techniekcommissie (light and sound)
- Doppio has its own group of technicians and we have an abundance of lights and wires to access. A technician is appointed to your performance and they will discuss the possibilities for the performance with you. After this, a plan is drafted concerning light and sound in order for your performers to look their best!
- PR – Promotion and relations
- The PR is in charge of making flyers and posters to guarantee a large audience during your performance.
A unique theatre hall!
Luckily, we can offer our players and directors a beautiful theatre hall at the TU/e campus. The corona hall (yes, that is really what it is called…) is equipped with a broad variety of technical facilities. In addition to lights for front- and backlight, the hall comes with a.o. six robes that can add colour to the scenes, and six moving heads for even more freedom of creativity. The hall has one bodypack and two handheld microphones readily available. Our technicians know this hall by heart and can create marvelous imagery together with you.
Under the guidance of Loes Herremans, Doppio can offer an internship to three theatre students. Together we will find out what your needs are and if Doppio can meet these. One of the groups taught by an intern will be a group of internationals who will get theatre lessons in English. Are you interested? Send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org !
Experiences of our directors
“Doppio is an association where everyone can be themselves entirely and therefore nothing is too crazy. In my eight years of directing at Doppio I have always felt that we really created everything together, so it does not surprise me that people stay members for such a long time. It is so much fun that I almost forget about the ugly rehearsal rooms and the coffee from plastic IKEA cups.” – Femke Veltman
