Wild Dogs Under My Skirt

Riverside Theatres presents Tusiata Avia’s Wild Dogs Under My Skirt from 18 to 20 April at the Riverside Theatres, Parramatta.

Adapted from Tusiata Avia’s poetry collection, Wild Dogs Under My Skirt is a provocative and unapologetic examination and celebration of what it is to be a Samoan woman. In the wake of the unending colonial earthquake, five Samoan characters make their lives between two cultures: playing, gossiping, enduring, enforcing the patriarchal status quo, and carving out powerful new identities.

An exhilarating theatrical poetry experience, Anapela Polata’ivao’s commanding direction introduces nuance, power, and dramatic sophistication into Avia’s deeply personal view of Pacific Island life and its sometimes-uneasy collisions with New Zealand.

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