Wild Dogs Under My Skirt
Victor Rodger FCC Productions presents
Wild Dogs Under My Skirt

10 Apr 2024 to 20 Apr 2024

One of New Zealand’s most successful theatrical exports makes its way to Australia after touring across New Zealand, performing off-Broadway in New York, and snapping up awards since 2016. This outstanding production breathes fierce life into poetry, womanhood and the unsettling challenge to tradition and conformity.

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.
