One of New Zealand’s most successful theatrical exports Wild Dogs Under My Skirt will perform at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre from 10 to 13 April.

Touring across New Zealand and performing off-Broadway in New York snapping up awards since 2016, Wild Dogs Under My Skirt 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.
