Dogged

Date: 16 Mar 2021

In alpine Victoria, on Gunaikurnai country, a flock of sheep are found with their throats torn open.

A woman, a farmer’s daughter, is on the hunt – looking for feral dogs. Rifle at her side, she camps down, thinking she’s alone.

But she’s not.

From deep between the eucalypts, a dingo watches her. Heart beating through skin. Bristling with hunger and grief. Waiting for the slightest show of weakness.

From Picnic at Hanging Rock to Wake in Fright, the greatest works of Australian Gothic teases a uniquely antipodean horror from the anxiety of living on stolen country. In a work of startling poetry, tenderness, and violence, Andrea James (Sunshine Super Girl) and AWGIE-winner Catherine Ryan ratchet this anxiety to epic proportions, in a bloody confrontation between two elemental forces, played out on contested territory.
