Ten Days on the Island: Hide the Dog

HidetheDog_Landscape_Sky-Actors Layers.jpg

Besties Niarra and Te Umuroa are playing in the bush;  just another ordinary day... until they chance upon the world’s last Tasmanian Tiger!

Eager to save their furry friend, Tigs, from wicked hunters, the trio cast off for Aotearoa. But hiding a Tiger is never plain sailing when powerful and playful Māori gods and palawa spirits are involved!

Hide the Dog is the first trans-Tasman, First Nations work for children. Adorable and fun, it shares deep cultural knowledge and reveals profound connections across the two cultures.

Co-written by Tasmanian playwright Nathan Maynard (palawa) and Aotearoa writer Jamie McCaskill (Māori), Hide the Dog is a world premiere production from Performing Lines TAS, with direction by Isaac Drandic (Noongar)  and a spectacular set from Māori designer Jane Hakaraia.  

Intrepid explorers of all ages will delight in this heart-warming, family-friendly celebration of true friendship, big adventure and the power of First Nations' cultures.
