Wild Dogs Under My Skirt
Vivid, passionate and provocative, Wild Dogs Under My Skirt is flush with humour and pure entertainment.
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 celebrated 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.
Fresh from their historical New York season at the SoHo Theatre.
“a uniquely poetic perspective” – NZ Herald
“…a treasure and truly one-of-a-kind. It’s for people like my sisters, cisters, fa’afafine, aunties, mother and grandmother. Its for Sāmoan women. And men. I say, it’s for everyone in need of finding the wild dog that lives within us all.” – Theatrescenes
