Wild Dogs Under My Skirt - New One-Woman Show

The hot new one-woman show from Tusiata Avia

Pataka Museum, Porirua, Saturday 21 June 7 pm & Newtown Community and Cultural Centre (Rintoul Street) Friday 27-Saturday 28 June 7pm, $10/8.

What do Samoan women and wild dogs have in common? A ground breaking, edge-of-your-seat-ride through the Pacific like you've never imagined it.Tusiata Avia delivers her confrontational, lyrical brand of performance, taking you from the South Seas to the Red Sea; from the strangest to the most familiar places. 'Wild Dogs' looks through Pacific eyes at being a woman, being between two cultures, racism, abuse, love, sex and wild dogs - the stuff you won't find in Blue Hawai'i. Be prepared to laugh, cry and have your prejudices shaken.

-"She is likely to be a major figure in our literature and in our performance culture." - Bill Manhire

- Pick of the Dunedin Fringe Festival 2002
