Wild Dogs Under My Skirt (Samoa/Aotearoa)
By Tusiata Avia
Directed by Anapela Polata’ivao
Produced by Victor Rodger and FCC

Alive with the energy and rhythm of raw and lyrical performance poetry and oral traditions, Wild Dogs Under My Skirt will challenge your perceptions of culture, life and love. Based on Tusiata Avia's provocative and unapologetic poetry, this is a play that explores power, politics, racism, love, sex, abuse and life between cultures. It's a celebration of island life, the femininity of a Samoan woman and all its wonderful complexities.

Vivid, passionate and compelling, Wild Dogs Under My Skirt is also flush with humour and pure entertainment.

Recommended for ages 13+
