Gavin Roach presents the Victorian Premiere of Lake Disappointment
"Kane and I were both rising stars. I was rising to the top of the hand-modelling world and Kane was doing his plays. Kane got his first action film and I became his double. We clicked. Everyone said so."
Who’s your celebrity doppelgänger? Could you make a living impersonating them? How about being their stand-in on the set of a film?
What if that was your life; to look like someone else; move like them; leave everything that makes you “you” behind?
Kane is one of the world’s biggest movie stars. And his body double is every bit as important, sharing more than just looks with his famous counterpart. But just how intertwined are their lives?
Written by two Australian theatre powerhouses, Lachlan Philpott and Luke Mullins, ‘Lake Disappointment’ is an insight into Narcissus, a world of mirrors and mannerisms that challenges our concepts of identity, ego and art.
