Steaming pig and McDonald’s value meals. Palagi boys and ruthless, authoritarian aunties. Jesus and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Hardcore Fa'a Samoa versus new Niu Sila ways.

In the wake of this unending colonial earthquake, six Samoan characters make their lives between two cultures: playing, gossiping, enduring, enforcing the patriarchal status quo and carving out powerful new identities.

Tusiata Avia’s revolutionary poetry is brought to brutal, funny, sexy, loving life by award-winning director Anapela Polata'ivao (The Factory, Think Of A Garden) and her electrifying cast.

Theatreview

"... the show presents a refreshing vision of Polynesian culture that clearly struck a chord with the diverse audience packing out Q's Rangatira theatre."

NZ Herald

"Wild Dogs Under My Skirt presents these women whole and demands that they be seen in all their beauty and flaws."

The Spinoff

"We are taken into the raw and exposed and cutting and loved and beloved lives of Samoan women."
